Alpine Club Oberland Meet 2018

Oberland, Switzerland

Saturday 23rd June - Saturday 7th July

Details of the Oberland Meet are now confirmed. Aimed at all members, both aspirant members who are looking to gain more experience with a view to completing their AC 20 alpine peaks, and full members who might have taken a break from alpine climbing and are looking to return to the action. The meet is aimed at all skill levels, and the Bernese Oberland is a great location for picking off numerous PD routes, and for developing an alpine CV.

Calling all Alpinists!

The Alpine Club would like to announce that four 2018 alpine meets are now open for booking, each with a slightly different emphasis. Places are being snapped up fast, so book now to avoid disappointment! For more information, please see the Meets section on the AC website. Please note that Aspirants are welcome to apply to join all of these. If you need advice on which meet is for you, please get in touch with Nicholas H. Smith This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
