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.

2021 Anti Atlas Meet
6th to 20th November
In 2021 the Alpine Club will return to the Anti Atlas of Morocco for more fantastic trad climbing. The area provides both cragging venues and long mountain routes. With lots of oppotunities for new routes.
The meet is later in the year which should give the cooler conditions needed for the longer routes in the sun.The meet will have 12 places.

It will be split between the Kasbah Tizourgane in the North of the region and a hotel in the main town of Tafraout to the South.

Participants should be competent leaders and aware of the remoteness of the region.

Total cost for the trip (flight, accommodation and hire car mainly) is expected to be around £500-£600.
