Welcome to the CCC Website

Colchester Climbing Club is North East Essex based club for all those interested climbing.

We are a friendly club of mixed ages and abilities who welcomes new members.

We meet every Monday and Thursday evening to climb at our local wall which is located in the University of Essex sports centre, and after climbing on Thursday members quite often go to one of the nearby pubs in Wivenhoe for some liquid refreshment.

From spring to autumn, we run monthly climbing trips to crags up and down the country as well as some in foreign parts, and then over the winter months we organise walking trips.

On top of this, members regularly visit other nearby climbing walls and like to get together for socials throughout the year.

Our club is BMC affiliated and our mission is to promote the interests of climbing, hillwalking and mountaineering amongst members of the club, and to provide an opportunity for members of the club to meet and participate in climbing, hillwalking and mountaineering activities together.
