Whether you're completely green, or an old hat - you'll find your outdoor mojo with the WMC.
Our members are a varied bunch, and by joining our club you'll have access to a vibrant community with regular meets and informal trips. While we are a mountaineering club by name, our interests extend to many different excuses to get outside!
From Staffordshire outcrops to suntrap southern sea-cliffs and everything in-between. Our hut is also spitting distance (almost..) from Dinowig slate quarries, if you're in that kind of mood.
Thinking of tackling some mega Alpine routes (or you're just in it for the apres-climb...)? Or maybe you just need to punish yourself in the unforgiving Scottish winter - we get it. And we'll join you - sometimes with Ski's on!
MTB and ROAD Cycling
So popular, we have official meets now dedicated to mountain biking! A popular option for when it's not climbing weather, or you need to give your fingetips a break may of our club members are keen cyclists (though a few of us prefer our bikes bigger and with engines...)
What used to be the preserve of weirdos and trolls has seen a surge in popularity as of late. Our club has a handful of cavers that can introduce you to the scene - and don't worry - they're still weirdos.
Walking and scrambling
Not everyone still hangs out on the end of a rope. For a number of our members, getting out into the hills for a fabulous walk is what it's all about. For a few others, walking back from the pub is an achievement.
Access to book out and stay in our hut for only £4 per night
BMC affiliate membership including retail discounts.
Discounted entry at Wolf Mountain Indoor Wall
JOIN OUR CLUB
With national lockdown, it might seem that now is not a particularly great time to join any outdoor club - and with our club hut restricted to limited use and our meets calender under revision there still is a lot of uncertainty.
But, if you're just too stir crazy stuck indoors, now might actually be the best time to reach out! While we won't be able to teach any aspiring new climbers the tricks of the trade (if you've watched Free Solo under lockdown, we sympathise!) we will be heading outdoors for some responsibly distanced activities. You'll have access to our message boards to keep your finger on any plans.
Normally we meet in the Great Western pub every Tuesday, but for the time being use the form below to register your interest in finding our more about the WMC.
