Join the IMC

We have a regular club climbing evening on the second Monday of each month at the climbing wall at Copleston school in Ipswich, which is one of the best ways to meet IMC members. People start to arrive about 7.30 pm. All abilities are welcome, whether you’ve climbed before or not, just come along and say hello (please note that under-16s are not allowed to climb at Copleston unless accompanied by an adult, and under-18s climbing with the club must sign a parental consent form).

Alternatively, you could come along to one of our social events. If any are planned (usually only during the winter months) then they are listed on our meets calendar.

For further information, come see us on Facebook or contact our club secretary at
