THE GRITSTONE CLUB was founded in 1922 to encourage pursuits of mountaineering, rock climbing, hill walking, potholing and skiing. Many of our members live near Leeds, Bradford, and other conurbations in our region so meeting for trips is easy. We hold regular weekend and mid week meets throughout the year, plus well positioned club huts in the Lake District and in the Yorkshire Dales. Regular meets internationally each year are also feature. For more on History and background NEW MEMBERS WELCOME - Join us on any of listed meets at weekends, indoor climbing, walking, etc to suit your interests. Contact us. DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE TO MEMBERS OF THE GRITSTONE CLUB - We have a wide range of discount options available to members. Some have been arranged by the club and many come via the BMC. However our buying power should enable other opportunities so let our secretary know if you identify other possibilities. For a more comprehensive listing see Discount Summary.
