The Mission of the Alpine Club
Our Vision: "The Alpine Club exists to facilitate access to and exploration of the mountainous regions of the world; provide a forum for members to meet, climb and share information, both internally and with the wider mountaineering community; support mountain arts, science and literature; act as a thought leader in mountain ecology, access and sustainability; and provide a platform for international collaboration."
The AC promotes a code of climbing ethics which seeks to protect mountains, mountain regions and their people from any harmful impact by climbers. The club is globally recognized as influential on these issues. Your membership will add to the weight of influence that we can bring to bear and allows you a voice.
