Members completed the South Downs Way in 2020 and are currently undertaking the South West Coast Path in stages. In recent years, members have participated in the annual Crickhowell Walking Festival in South Wales. Club members ventured to Italy in 2016, Austria in 2017 and Portugal in 2018. Members occasionally meet up in London for social/cultural events.

Red Rope Walking & Climbing Club

Red Rope is a walking and climbing club, with socialist, left-wing, green and alternative roots. The club has over 200 members in a dozen regions of the UK, has a very inclusive ethos, and at least half our members are women.

Our activities include country walking, hill-walking, and mountaineering, plus climbing in a few of our regions. We organise day events and weekend trips, with a popular programme of longer ‘National Trips’ to hill-walking areas such as North Wales, the Lakes and Scotland, including mountain trips summer and winter. We use the network of ‘huts’ owned by BMC clubs plus other bunkhouses or youth hostels and arrange occasional camping trips. We have a special arrangement with Lancashire Mountaineering Club for shared use of their two huts in Snowdonia and the Lake District.

The club is organised around a principle of sharing. Membership and trip charges are on a scale related to your income, making club activities affordable for all. On trips we share communally cooked meals, usually vegetarian, and we try to share transport where possible.

Our regions vary in their activities, depending on who is in the group and the location. You can join your nearest region for walks, socials and trips but are very welcome on any region’s events, and the National trips, all advertised in a monthly mailing. We have groups in Bristol & South-West, East Anglia, Leicester & Nottingham, Liverpool & Merseyside, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield, the Midlands, and Scotland.

We aim to make new members most welcome, including beginners. Find out more about Red Rope from our website https://www.redrope.org.uk/

The Gentian Mountaineering & Hillwalking Club

View on Map
Main club contact: Mr Steven Bates
Telephone: 01226 247882
Email: sbates8@aol.com
Website: www.gentianclub.org.uk
We are a national club, with male and female members from all over Britain. We organise a programme of meets throughout the year in areas such as the Lake District, Wales, the Peak District,Yorkshire Dales and Scotland. There is also an annual trip abroad, e.g. Mallorca, the French Alps, Pyrenees, Austrian Alps or the Costa Blanca.

We book a very wide range of accommodation. At one end of the spectrum we use remote ‘huts’ with basic facilities. At the other end, we visit luxury lodges with twin rooms, wifi and ensuites. Most accommodation is somewhere in the middle. Full details of the accommodation are always given on the programme.

Experienced Club members are always willing to share their knowledge. In addition, we run Club events such as ‘Improve your navigation’ and subsidize places on professionally run courses such as ‘Winter Skills’ and ‘Discover Scrambling’.

The Club is probably best described as a "hard walking club". Most members are not in the "super fit" category but we do have many strong hill walkers and many who enjoy scrambling. We are not the Ramblers!

Our Club prides itself on being very friendly and welcoming to new members. Unlike many clubs we cater together. In the evening there is always a vegetarian and non-veg option as well as starter and dessert. There's beer and wine as well!

We welcome everyone from complete beginners to experienced mountaineers and it would be great to see you on a meet! To find out more, see our Facebook page or visit our website www.gentianclub.org.uk

Founded in Manchester in 1902, our club has 550 members who enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities including climbing, walking, mountaineering, biking and running. With a membership spread across Britain (from Cornwall to Sutherland) we are very much a national club although traditionally members have lived around Manchester and the Peak and this is reflected in our weekday Meets programme. We also have a strong Merseyside contingent.
The Club has an active Meets programme with walking and climbing Meets to suit all tastes every Wednesday, most frequently in the Peak District. Weekend Meets make the most of our three mountain huts based in central Snowdonia (Nant Peris), the southern Lakes (Duddon Valley) and Glencoe (overlooking Loch Linnhe). We also travel further afield with regular Alpine trips and a winter sun-rock Meet firmly on the Meets calendar.
Friendship has always been at the heart of the club and our social events cater for all ages. We very much welcome new members, whether experienced or relative newcomers to our core activities, so explore our website, get in touch and join us “getting out there”… Why not become an Associate Member, which provides the benefit of BMC membership (and importantly its third party liability insurance) as well as offering a chance to get to know us better?

If you are looking for a friendly & active mountaineering club in the West Midlands then West Brom MC is probably right for you. Our 200 strong membership is attracted from all over the West Midlands as we are one of the few clubs that runs a regular monthly coach to the hills, so that members and guests can walk & climb sociably, without having to worry about parking or driving home. And of course a coach also opens up the possibility of linear routes across the mountains!
Our members enjoy climbing, hillwalking, scrambling, biking, running, surfing and similar activities, plus they have exclusive use of our hut in Snowdonia. Every February we have a Winter Week based at a hotel in Scotland and there are also regular weekend meets & social events, including family weekends, plus occasional long weekend or week-long trips abroad e.g. Alps, Morocco, Russia.
New and visiting climbers & hill walkers welcome, especially on our coach meets - one of the best ways to get to know people! Or else come along to our regular Thursday club nights - indoor slide shows in winter & outdoor evening meets in summer. FREE MEMBERSHIP or reduced fees for young, junior and student members.

Many lifelong friendships have resulted from club membership.

New members are always welcome, whatever your level of experience.

We have a programme that covers 52 weeks of the year with weekly weekend local meets, and monthly hut or camping weekends. During the summer there is also weekday evening climbing in the Peak District. Generally summer meets tend towards rock climbing, winter meets towards hillwalking and winter mountaineering while weekends away are a free-for-all of various activities depending on location! We also arrange to meet through our messageboard. See our website for our current programme of activities.

The Castle has a club house behind the Rising Sun on Abbey Lane, Sheffield S11 9ND with its own indoor climbing wall. We meet on the first and third Thursday of the month from about 9:00 p.m. to discuss forthcoming meets, drink beer and have a chat. During the winter we hold regular presentations of members' activities undertaken during the year. Winter also sees regular trips to one of the local walls.

You can also find us on Facebook.

We have a nucleus of members in and around the Peak area, the rest being randomly scattered around the country, brought together regularly by our common love of the outdoors. Activities include climbing, walking, mountain biking, canoeing, winter mountaineering, cross country skiing, etc. We're a small club and as such are not able to "teach" climbing, though novice climbers will always find encouragement.
We have a programme of meets throughout the year anywhere from Lands End to the NW Highlands, and small local groups of members who make more casual arrangements for outings in their area (typically South Coast, Peak District, Yorkshire, North West). We’ve also ventured further afield with longer trips to the Alps, the Dolomites and Sardinia, and several of our members have walked and climbed in North & South America, Canada and Nepal.
We have a regular session each week at the Nottigham Climbing Centre, so if you want to find out more about us, please get in touch

Yorkshire Ramblers' Club

View on Map
Main club contact: Mr Michael Borroff
Website: www.yrc.org.uk
Founded over a century ago in 1892, the Yorkshire Ramblers’ Club is one of the UK’s senior mountaineering, exploration and caving clubs. The YRC is involved not just in one outdoor 'activity' but in exploration in its widest sense. So, whether you are a caver, climber, mountaineer, scrambler, hill-walker or ski-tourer, the club has plenty to offer you. The one thing we never do is ramble and we have no links whatsoever with the Ramblers Association!
We have an active programme of meets throughout the year spread across the UK and internationally. The meets list also includes a couple of European trips and often a trip to one of the greater ranges - Himalayas/ South America/ Californian High Sierras/ China etc.
Exploration has always been a key part of the club's ethos both in formal expeditions and through members organising their own trips. You can read about these and about our Club meets in our Journal which is published annually or checkout our Facebook page.
The YRC has two well-equipped properties: a traditional Lakes cottage in Little Langdale and a purpose-built club headquarters near Clapham in the Yorkshire Dales. Members can stay at these huts and bring their guests and families. We also have reciprocal hut use arrangements with several kindred clubs which gives our members access to a wider range of accommodation at favourable rates.
We have some 160 members living across the UK, but our roots are in firmly in Yorkshire. We take pride in giving prospective members and guests a warm welcome, so why not visit our website, see what we are up to next and join in.
UK meets are catered for by the organiser, so you just need to bring lunches and refreshments. On the hill, members and guests fragment into smaller parties by inclination and ability to tackle their mutual objectives, so you will always find a few of us who are up for whatever you want to do.
So, if you are interested in joining a friendly, active club with a wide scope of activities at all levels of difficulty in and outside the UK contact the YRC Membership Secretary for more details.

Additional Information

Climbing, hill walking and mountaineering are the principle objectives of the clubs featured in the list.

They are all based in and controlled by their own members. All club applications are submitted to the BMC National Council for approval.

Eleven areas form the democratic base of the BMC, and serve as local forums for discussion and debate about mountaineering issues. The clubs are listed under the relevant area, but usually accept members from other areas. There is a small number of national clubs and these are listed separately. The contact for each club listed here will normally be able to supply you with details of their club membership requirements, activities, meeting places, etc.
