A&E offers opportunities for both indoor and outdoor climbing, from beginner levels to experienced. The newly opened Life Centre in Plymouth offers over 150 routes on 16m, 10m and 8m walls, for top rope and lead climbs, along with a large dedicated bouldering area. For outdoor climbing the club runs trips at weekends to many locations in the South West and further afield, including the spectacular Cheddar Gorge and of course local Dartmoor. Even if you have never tried climbing and would love to give it a go, or are experienced and would like to be challenged, there is something for everyone in the club. We also encourage members to undertake qualifications, including Single Pitch Award (SPA) and Mountain Leader (ML).
There’s a small but eager contingent of cavers in Adventure & Expo. They travel the country, and the world, finding the best caves. If you’re looking for a bit of adventure in your life, and you don’t mind a bit of mud, caving is for you. Conquer your fears and explore where few people venture.
We regularly run trips to Devon caves, including Bakers Pit, Pridhamsleigh Cavern, Afton Red Rift and Radford. Mine Exploration trips can also be arranged. Further afield we have strong ties to the Mendip Caving Group, Wessex Cave Club, Plymouth Caving Group and Devon Cave Rescue Organisation.
We are lucky in Plymouth to have Dartmoor on our doorstep for some pretty wild adventures. Further afield we run trips to the Brecons, Snowdonia, the Lakes and abroad.
We have everything from gentle coast path strolls to full blown mountain expeditions.
Slacklining is the newest sport to come to Adventure & Expo. It’s a cross between a tightrope and a trampoline, and totally addictive. Give it a go, you won’t regret it.
The perfect way to un-wind after a climbing/caving session and brilliant for core strength and balance.
