Ibex club history

In October 1984 a small group of friends who had met at one of London's multi-activity clubs decided to form their own mountaineering club.

The club was to be for mountaineers, hill walkers and climbers, who wanted to enjoy full days on the hills and good food and company afterwards.

This proved popular so the club grew rapidly and soon had over one hundred members. Some of the founding members are still active within the club.

The club has continued to develop since 1984, introducing guided European treks and weeks in Scotland, but we feel no need to change the essentials.
