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 Parthian wall (formerly 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. 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 sociable group and in addition to Wednesday evenings at the Reading Climbing Centre (now Parthian!), there are socials every month. So, if you feel like meeting us first, before a climb, get in touch!
