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

AC Members have been invited to join the 2021 Himalyan Club Seminar. The event will feature talks from Natalie Berry, Mick Fowler, Bernadette McDonald, Mark Richey, Kristjan Erik, Jamling Tenzing, Peter Van Geit, Rupin Dang and Mingma Tenzing. 
The event runs from this Friday (05/03) to Sunday (07/03) with talks scheduled from 6:00PM to 8:30PM. We are assuming that this will be Mumbai time, which is 5 and a half hours ahead of the UK.
The talks will go out live and can be viewed on either the Himalayan Club Facebook Page or YouTube Channel.
