Climbing-grants-2015

This year the Alpine Club is supporting seven expeditions to the Greater Ranges with grants from its Climbing Fund.

The aim of these grants is to support AC members on expeditions that have an exploratory element or are attempting a new or unique project. Preference is generally given to expeditions comprising students and younger members, and to those woh have not previously been awarded a grant.
