Meets

Here is a list of Alpine Club meets. Select additional pages using the numbers at the bottom. A list of past meets is can be seen by clicking here.

The Meets programme provides great opportunities for fellow members to get to know each other in the climbing areas of the UK and the mountains of the world.  UK meets in particular offer the chance for members to drop in, even for just an evening drink.

New members have often attended meets as guests of members before they joined and their presence on meets is particularly welcome both to widen their circle of acquaintance and to assist with maintaining that tradition of openness to prospective members. Non-members may attend meets as guests of members at the discretion of the meet coordinator.

Before attending please read the Meet Guidelines

.. In the footsteps of Cassin and Bonatti. The Lake Como meet is based at the historic Carlo Porta hut (www.rifugiocporta.com), located in the Grigna Mountains (Gruppo delle Grigne, Grigna Meridionale 2,177M, Grigna Settentrionale 2,410M) above Lecco.
 
It gives easy access by foot and by car to a variety of possibilities, including low level south-facing crags (corno del medale, zucco dell'angelone) for rock climbing in T shirts and shorts. Higher up on the northern side are snow and ice climbs, including the "Wailing Wall" - 1600M height gain.
 
There is a wide choice of rock climbing of all grades and snow / ice climbs from F to TD+.
 
Italian hospitality included, and if there is bad weather visits to Milan, Bergamo etc or a boat ride on the lake. 
 
The cost of the hut is 50 Euros per day half board. Up to 16 participants are welcome.
