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


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 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.

AC Lundy Meet
From Saturday 07 August 2021
To Tuesday 10 August 2021
Contact Nathan Moore
Saturday 07 August 2021
This meet will be an excellent opportunity for those who have not yet visited the Island ofLundy, or for us who were denied the opportunity in 2020. It offers an abundance of some of the country's best sea cliff climbing in the most remote of locations, surrounded by seals and dolphins. These dates also miss the main bird ban season!
We will leave from Illfracombe on the morning of the 7th, and return early evening on the 10th, exact timings to be announced when the sailing timetable is set. We will be camping for the meets duration - bring extra pegs - it gets windy!
Total cost £132 (£56 for camping & £76 for the ferry). You will be responsible for your own meals, there is a very reasonable pub and restaurant on site and a convenience store.
Please submit your interest, you will be booking the ferry and camping individually, however, we will inform them we are a group when we have final numbers.
Have a look on: for more information about logistics etc, I will also keep people updated with key points and advice when necessary.
