From April to October we meet every Tuesday evening at a local crag, if it's raining then many of us us will head to the Leeds Wall or The Depot. On the first Tuesday of every month the meet is always to Almscliff crag. After climbing we usually go to a nearby pub, for the first Tuesday at Almscliff this is dedicated a new members social and is held in the Hunters Inn near Pool in Wharfedale (unless it's raining).

From May to October we have one or two camping meets per month to somewhere mountainous in the UK with walking, climbing and scrambling being the main activities undertaken by members. We also have regular walking and climbing meets on Saturdays or Sundays, often to the Peak District or the Yorkshire Dales. There are also occaisional hut meets during the summer months.
