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 if it's just for 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.

Based in La Paz, Bolivia, this Greater Ranges Meet is for Full Members with recent and appropriate summer alpine experience.

The Cordillera Real (the ‘Royal Range’) is a mountain range of the Andes, spanning nearly 150km in length from the suburbs of La Paz in the south-east to Lake Titicaca on the Bolivian/Peruvian border to the north-west. The range has six peaks over 6000m, the highest being Illimani at 6438m, and hundreds of peaks over 5000m.

Objectives range from around PD upwards, and most will require an approach trek of one to several days. Most will require one or two camps, with most summits being achievable in a day from a high camp. Logistics support can be arranged in the days before each objective, minimising the requirement for extensive planning prior to the meet.

Hotel accommodation will be booked for the duration of the meet and will be used as a base for participants between climbing trips. Accommodation will be reasonably basic but spacious enough for organising equipment between trips. Based on the previous Greater Ranges Meet to the Peruvian Cordillera Blanca, participants should expect to pay less than £300 each for the month in accommodation. Other costs, including food and transport, are also very reasonable.

This friendly meet will seek to acclimatise together, or in small groups, before independent pairs or teams pursue their own itineraries and objectives. Participants must be Full Members with suitable and recent summer alpine experience and are encouraged to attend as established climbing teams. Individual participants are of course welcome and will be teamed up with another participant prior to meet departure.
