Joint with ABMSAC, CC, FRCC, SMC, LSCC, Wayfarers and Yeovil MC

It is 12 years since the AC Alpine meet visited the Chamonix valley so a meet in the area is long overdue. For 2015 we will be based at Camping du Glacier D'Argentiere ( There is something for everybody in the area, hard mountain routes, easy mountain routes and everything in between, masses of recently developed sport and trad climbing in the Aiguille Rouge with superb views over the Mont Blanc range, a whole guidebook of valley cragging for when the weather is not so good, walking, mountain biking and of course plenty of retail therapy opportunities for when the weather is really inclement !
The campsite is very friendly with free hot water, showers and WiFi. Bread and croissants are available in the morning, & there is even a pizza van on site twice a week. Booking is not possible but there are usually spaces available and we will have the group tent again for use as a meeting place. The guest card gives free bus and rail travel within the Chamonix valley.
