The BMC’s South West team will be hosting a Cornish Climbing Festival over the weekend of 7 – 9 September 2012. It will be based at the Treen Farm campsite and absolutely everyone is welcome.


The festival will be based at the Treen Farm Campsite with evening festivities at the Logan Rock Inn. According to Google, they’re 217ft apart which should take you approximately 20 seconds to cover on the way to the pub, possibly slightly more on the way back. More details will appear closer to the date, but for now the plan is roughly as follows:

Friday night:
The festival kicks off in the Logan Rock with beers and a slideshow by an Amazing Mystery Guest Speaker.

Will dawn warm and sunny, with the world famous BMC Breakfast Bar running on the campsite. Free egg and/or bacon butties will be served, with a compulsory donation to the RNLI. Local guidebook writers and activists will be on hand to advise you of the best places to go.

Saturday evening will see more beers, a quiz and a raffle, plus some tall stories from the day. The breakfast bar is repeated on Sunday morning. There's plenty of climbing within walking distance from the campsite.

The BMC’s local team is hosting the event, but we are not providing instruction. All we’re laying on is the venue, the ideas and the breakfast butties. If you’re new to climbing outdoors, you’re most welcome, but we would suggest employing the services of a recognised instructor. The Association of Mountaineering Instructors is the best place to go for that.

More details will be posted around the web a few weeks beforehand. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
