The SOC climbing section has members from across North East England and welcomes new members from beginners to experienced climbers. The club typically climbs on Wednesday evenings - during spring and summer this will be outside at crags on the North Yorkshire Moors, Yorkshire grit, Yorkshire limestone and the Eden Valley. In autumn and winter the club climbs at the local indoor walls. On some weekends meets are organised going further field as well as foreign trips as well. Any new members joining will have access to a network of climbers operating at different levels but with many keen to get out regularly. Typically meets are arranged using the club WhatsApp group, which new members can access once they join the club
