The Reading Mountaineering Club


We are a friendly and active group of people who are passionate about climbing, walking, and scrambling; the range of abilities is wide. Our activities include regular climbing at the RCC on Wednesday evenings, regular meets away, and local socials. The club has a lively atmosphere and is a good way to meet like-minded people.

Usually the meets list covers monthly trips to areas such as the Lakes, North Wales, Peak district, Gower, Pembrokeshire, and Cornwall (given the Covid situation, our activities are somewhat curtailed). We would typically camp or stay in a hut.

The club provides a perfect forum, through its Facebook site and WhatsApp group, for organising additional trips ‐ keep an eye out for those.

We are a very sociable group (in "normal times") and in addition to Wednesday evenings at the Reading Climbing Centre, there are (should be!) socials every month. So, if you feel like meeting us first, before a climb, get in touch!

Contact and Joining Info

Membership of the club for 2020 costs £28 per year for an individual (reduced to £16 for students, unemployed and retired). Membership for a couple (any two people living at the same address) is £45 per year. For this fee members have access to meets/the club network and affiliation to The British Mountaineering Council (BMC) which gives you third party insurance when climbing on RMC meets (and one copy of 'Summit' per year - the Feb/Mar issue which includes details of the BMC AGM).

Note: prospective members are very welcome to come along to a monthly or social meet (when social distancing is not in place) before deciding if they wish to join.

You can join at the wall on a Wednesday, or send a bank transfer/cheque for the appropriate amount (cheques payable to the 'Reading Mountaineering Club') postal address shown in the application form together with a filled in application form which you can download here.

If you would like more information please find us on Facebook or alternatively send an e-mail to info@readingmountaineeringclub.org.uk
