Hampshire Mountaineering Association

Our activities

We are a small and friendly climbing club with members mainly in Hampshire and West Sussex (Portsmouth, Southampton, and Chichester areas) although we do have members from further a field.

We organise a full calendar of climbing meets thoughout the year, and enable like-minded individuals to enjoy climbing and the outdoors. We try to find places to climb that are suitable for lower and mid grade climbers.

Our organised meets provide a mix of both trad and sport climbing, with visits to local indoor walls when it’s raining. In addition, our members often suggest and organise extra day trips when they can.

The HMA also has Single Pitch Award (SPA) qualified members, this is a nationally recognised climbing instruction qualification. We also have a range of climbing equipment which can be lent out to new climbers.
