Gentian Mountaineering Club

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 backpacking meet and may be an informal trip abroad in Summer to the Alps or to Spain in Winter. We stay in simple accommodation to keep the cost down, usually bunkhouses and other clubs' huts.
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 wine as well!
It would be great to see you on a meet! To find out more, see our Facebook page or visit our website where you can contact our Membership Secretary to join us.

The Rucksack Club Ltd

Main club contact: Mr John Farrow

Email: john.farrow@talk21.com
Website: www.rucksackclub.org
The Rucksack Club was founded in Manchester in 1902 and with a current membership of over four hundred men and women has always attracted keen mountaineers who value the company of like-minded people in the hills. Members participate in a diverse range of outdoor activities, often at the cutting edge. We hold over 150 meets each year and mountaineering, climbing and hill walking are at the heart of these.

The Club has three excellent and strategically placed huts, each with its own special character:

Beudy Mawr: at the heart of the Llanberis Pass, and a few minutes' walk from the Grochan and the

Cromlech

High Moss: in the Duddon Valley at the foot of the Walna Scar track over to Coniston, and a great base for Dow & the Duddon.

Craigallan: looking out over Loch Linnhe within easy reach of Glencoe and the Ben.

The Club welcomes and encourages applications from enthusiastic men and women who can demonstrate sound experience of mountaineering and/or climbing and/or hill walking and a current active commitment

to one or more of those activities. If you're interested to find out more and get to know us better, why not come along on one of our meets - maybe an evening at a local crag or a weekend in one of the huts? This is a great way of getting to know the Club and some of its Members.

Meanwhile you can immediately become an Associate Member, which provides the benefit of BMC

membership (and importantly its third party liability insurance). Simply contact the Associate Members'

Secretary at join@rucksackclub.org or download details from the website.

Yorkshire Ramblers' Club

View on Map
Main club contact: Mr Mick 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.

Our members undertake a wide range of activities including rock climbing, walking, trekking, backpacking, ski mountaineering, cycling, ski touring and mountain biking. What unites us is our love of the outdoors and enjoying it with others. We're a rather sociable and supportive bunch with a lot of combined experience. 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.

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

DAG is a friendly Hemel Hempstead based walking group of all abilities. Established for over 25 years it organises monthly weekends away to the mountainous areas of England and Wales and regular local walks around the beautiful Hertfordshire countryside and surrounding areas. The group is run on a very informal basis and keeps costs down to a minimum by using bunk-houses and self-catering. New members of all abilities are always welcome. Do enquire and come along and meet us on a local walk or join us for a week-end away for a trial run.

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.
