Ibex Mountain & Hillwalking Club is a hiking, mountaineering and walking club based in London.
Ibex Mountain & Hillwalking Club is a friendly, inclusive club. Our members are hill walkers and mountaineers of all ages, social backgrounds and experience. We welcome new members to join us on our weekends away.
Coronavirus: With the easing of lockdown restrictions, we are now able to run some hotel-based weekends away - the club cannot currently use group accommodation. We are also organising day walks - we are asking participants to contact the organiser in advance, to ensure that we can maintain social distancing. Club nights will continue to be held on Zoom.
Ibex weekend trips go to the mountains and the coast. Our favourite locations include the Lake District, Snowdonia, Yorkshire, Dartmoor and the Peak District. We stay in bunkhouses, mountain huts and hostels keeping costs down.
Ibex organises 6-9 day walks each year. Walks start from a railway station, a short journey from London. They're a good way to get to know Ibex members and to build your fitness before coming on an Ibex weekend for the first time.
Ibex organises week trips to Scotland staying in self-catering cottages, so its more deluxe than our weekends - a great way to get to the remote hills. We also do an annual hut to hut trip in the Alps or other European mountains.
Scrambling and climbing are an option on some of our weekends. The club organises informal monthly climbing evenings at a variety of London climbing walls so that those members who climb can practice together.
