ESC Yorkshire Dales New Members Weekend

12 Aug 2022 - 14 Aug 2022

Organiser's Description

Welcome to the payment page for our New Members club trip!

We have booked YHA Slaidburn in the Forest of Bowland, it has space for 30 people. Check out the map for the exact location.



For insurance reasons these trips are aimed at ESC members and for that reason they will have been emailed a discount code. If you are not a member and try to use the code your ticket will be invalidated by us and give me a headache so please don't! The discount code only works for one person at a time so if you want to pay for multiple people with a code just buy one ticket at a time. If you joined after that email went round please message a committee member for the code.

Note: most new members will count as prospective members and don't need to sign up before the trip, unless they wish to start signing up with the discounts.

If you're not a member of the club you count as a prospective member for insurance reasons (ie are covered) for the first three months since you first did a club activity. If you've been coming on club trips for longer than that you'll need to join up to come. The link for that is here:

The breakdown of the costs is as follows:

2 nights ESC member - £30 (usual discount code)

2 nights NON member - £40


Make sure you add yourself to the Facebook event page to arrange car sharing. If you're not on facebook get in touch and I'll help sort you a lift. The process for car sharing is as follows; if you can offer a lift then post on the facebook event where you live and how many spaces you have, if you want a lift comment underneath that persons post untill the car is full. Costs are set by the driver and split between everyone in the car. There will be a whatsapp group for the event if you message one of the committee to ask, or they may find you once booked.

Activies for the weekend

Friday - Earliest arrival 16:00 there is a pub opposite for those early.

For the new members - We are aiming to get one good full day of climbing under complete supervision and guidance, with a training plan to help move you forward with your outdoor climbing skills. The second day will be a more informal day of grouping up with other members, we will make sure every new member is looked after. New members that don't require any teaching - both days will be more informal joining older members at the crags :)


What you need to bring

Food and alcohol for the weekend, although you can top up easily enough if needed. The kitchen and dining space at Slaidburn YHA may be a bit small for a communal meal. I will decide and let people know the plan. I'm also looking at possibly the pub next door having us all for Saturday evening, they have a big room upstairs that may be available. Still TBC so will be discussed in the event Whatsapp group!

Pillow, Sheets and Duvet are provided at the YHA , bring towels.

Appropriate kit for hiking or walking to crags in the Yorkshire Dales (If you're not 100% confident please reach out) Including appropriate footwear, that you've broken in, decent waterproofs and warm layers.

Any other gear you have that you need for the activities including a bike if your going biking (or find somewhere nearby to hire one).

Other things of note:

You will need to give the accomodation a light cleaning Sunday morning before leaving the YHA. Check-out is 10am!! I will speak to the hut manager and see if that can be put back a touch later. Work together with everyone to do this, if you don't know what needs doing speak to the trip leader.

Any questions please let us know! :)
