What we're all about...
Practise and share Mountain Skills
Bremex aims to provide an inspirational and welcoming setting to practise, improve and share the skills involved in hillwalking, mountaineering and climbing. We have some keen cyclists and have at least one mountain bike meet a year.
Bremex has no formal 'base' and all our activities are undertaken on a peer-to-peer basis. This way people get to learn from more experienced club members.
The club comprises some very experienced members. Virtually all our members have their Summer Mountain Leader award; many have their Winter ML, and we have members with their MIC and International Mountain Leader awards.
Anyone is welcomed to join as an associate member, or just come along to a meet on a 'taster' basis then join at a later date if you think Bremex is for you.
Want to know more? Go to the About page.
Organised weekends of led groups and peer group workshops provide opportunities to learn and practise skills including:
- Poor visibility/Night Navigation
- Rock climbing
- High camping/bivvying
- Winter Skills
Novices are welcome to come along, get involved long-term and gain from the knowledge of more experienced members, many of whom are working towards or hold mountaineering and climbing awards from WGL, SPA, MLS, IML through to MIC. Bremex is affiliated to the BMC and several of our weekend meets have been recognised as Continuing Professional Development by MTA.
Weekend meets are planned nationally, from Dartmoor to Scotland and all good mountain and upland areas in between.

There are 4 levels of membership, full, associate, social and junior. we also have taster weekends if you want to come along and see how it works before committing to membership.

Bremex 50th Celebration
Jeremy has very kindly made all the photos he took available on Flickr. You can view the slideshow here.
Tribute to Steve Holding
Members of the club past and present have sent in their tributes for Steve Holding, who was unfortunately and very sadly lost in the recent Nepal plane crash. We have put all these tributes together on the following page. If you would like to add your own words, please feel free to email them to any member of the committee.
The fund Bremex has set up for Steve now stands at nearly £1500. Many thanks to all those who have donated so far. If you want to donate to this fund, please contact a member of the committee.

We have made a short film in tribute to Steve Holding, put together using footage taken during the preparations to the photo below. Click here to see it.
