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: We are now restarting our weekend trips, with a modified programme - some destinations have been changed to allow us to use accommodation that is better suited to social distancing. We are also running day walks - participants are asked to contact the organiser in advance, so that we can maintain social distancing. Club nights and climbing nights 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.
