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!

Montane sponsors of the Alpine Club Climbing Fund

From 2016 Montane, a company that engineers innovative, lightweight, breathable clothing and equipment for endurance sports and activities in extreme environments, are sponsoring the Alpine Club Climbing Fund. Please support them as they are supporting us.

In addition to supporting a limited number of private Members' expeditions, the Alpine Club organises annual expeditions, which are often to remote and little-known mountain areas (See List below). In contrast to the private expeditions, the latter are open to all members, subject to qualifying criteria and numbers. Each year at least one Alpine Club Expedition will be subsidised by the Montane Alpine Club Climbing Fund.
