The Alpine Club, the world’s first mountaineering club, was founded in 1857.  For over 150 years, members have been at the leading edge of worldwide mountaineering development and exploration. 

With membership, experienced and aspiring alpinists benefit from a varied meets programme, regional lectures with notable guest speakers, reduced rates at many alpine huts, opportunity to apply for grants to support expeditions, significant discounts at many UK retailers, extensive networking contacts, access to the AC Library and maps - and more! 

Becoming a Member

Sunday 14th April 2019 - Harrisons Rocks 

The Club is looking to organise a mini meet program in the SE of England, and so provide an opportunity for members to get to know each other and so potentially build contacts for future climbing trips.  Also, simply a chance to just get out and have a good time.

A dozen members and guests attended Harrison Rocks.  Finishing during the early afternoon, most of those who attended, retired for further social in the local Crown Inn in Groombridge for a welcomed well earned  ale and Sunday lunch. 

Next Mini Meet is provisionally on the 1st/2nd June Eridge Rocks.  Keep an eye on the Club’s website for details HERE
