JCMT Alpine Preparation Course in North Wales

Applications are now open for the 2024 Jonathan Conville Memorial Trust alpine mountaineering courses for 18 to 30 year olds. With 50% of the course cost met by the Trust, these provide a great introduction for aspiring mountaineers.

Established in 1980, the Jonathan Conville Memorial Trust (JCMT) has provided over 5,000 young people the essential skills needed to play safely in the mountains through their subsidised course offering in the Alps and UK.  The BMC has been a key JCMT partner for forty years.

All course fees represent 50% of the true cost, with the Trust meeting half of all course costs.

The most impressive traverse ever completed?

Belgian climber Sean Villanueva O'Driscoll has been willingly stuck in Patagonia since Covid-19 kicked off, and making the most of it: jaws dropped around the climbing world when he became the first to solo the Fitz Roy Traverse late last week. This epic route, fantasised about by anyone who has ever seen a photo of the jagged skyline above El Chalten, was first completed by the dream simul-climbing team of Alex Honnold and Tommy Caldwell in 2014.
