Ibex Mountain & Hillwalking Club is a hiking, mountaineering and walking club based in London. New members are always welcome.
We organise weekends in the mountains (Lake District, Snowdonia, Yorkshire, Dartmoor, Peak District, Brecon Beacons). Some weekends include options for scrambling and climbing. We also go for week trips to Scotland. The club helps members develop their mountain skills with a focus on navigation and group leadership. See the winning photos from the 2019 Ibex calendar competition.
Weekends are organised by club members. We stay in bunkhouses, mountaineering huts, hostels and campsites.
Leaving London on a Friday afternoon, usually sharing cars or travel by public transport. Members plan several hike routes based around a longer day on Saturday and shorter day on Sunday.
We'll eat together on Saturday evening, with everyone helping with meal preparation.
Day walks are open to all members and prospective members.
Routes are planned within the South East and start from a railway station, a short journey from London. They're a good way to build your fitness before coming on an Ibex weekend for the first time.
If you would like to come along, please just turn up on the day, there is no need to contact the organiser in advance.
We meet on the second Tuesday evening of each month in central London.
There is usually an hiking-themed slideshow or workshop and it's a good opportunity to meet other club members for a drink.
New members are always welcome. Come along to the next club night on Tue, 12th Nov 2019.
