Training Meets & Events

International Meets

The benefits of international meets are varied. It can often be difficult to find partners for climbing, alpinism, ski mountaineering, sport climbing, hut to hut trekking, winter mountaineering & ice climbing. These areas of special interest benefit from an organised gathering in an alpine or winter venue. They establish a regular place to meet others with folk often just meeting in Scotland or the Alps but not in Ireland.

  • Annual Summer Alpine Meet 
    The alpine meet moves from alpine region to alpine region, calling to France, Italy, Switzerland & Austria. Based in a valley campsite close to the mountains, this meet provides activities for all ages, families, clubs and individuals. The areas are selected to cater to; climbers, trekkers, boulders, alpinists, cyclists, runners, botanists and geologists. Something for everyone. 
    The Youth component of the this meet is also connected as a UIAA Youth Event. To facilitate this we subsidise course fees for 18-26 year old youth members.

  • Annual Winter Meet
    There is nothing quite like Scotland in the winter, the short days, wet snow, cold conditions, wind chill and gruelling days. This challenging environment provides a unique experience to learn the mountaineering skills for survival and adventure.
