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

Saturday 28 August 2021
Based in the Saas Valley,  Switzerland at Hotel Schönblick and the campsite opposite, this meet is aimed primarily at Aspirant members in the 1st or 2nd Alpine season. 
 
The meet has 18 places, and starts with two days spent developing alpine techniques with three mountain guides, including crevasse rescue and moving together, led by AC member Owen Samuel. 
 
The Saas valley is flanked by numerous 4000m peaks with dozens of mixed climbs in the lower grades, and is blessed with excellent transport links.
 
This year’s meet coincides with the 150th anniversary of the 1st ascent of the Portjengrat by Thomas Clinton Dent, who was President of the Alpine Club 1886-89.
