The Gloucestershire Mountaineering Club


Since its formation by a small, determined group of hill and mountain lovers in 1955 the Gloucestershire Mountaineering Club (GMC) has gone from strength to strength and now has a membership of over 120 mountaineers, climbers, walkers, ski tourers, mountain bikers and fell runners, its own hut in Snowdonia and a very active meets list. In addition to the monthly pub meet (now at The Warehouse Climbing Centre, Parliament Street Gloucester) on the first Tuesday of every month, trips are organised to areas such as North Wales, the Lake District, Cornwall, the Peak District and Scotland. Also during the winter months the climbers in the club hone their skill on Tuesday evenings at the The Warehouse climbing centre in Gloucester.

However, the club does not just limit its activities to the UK. Over the years the club has organised a number of expeditions to the Himalayas, as well as trips to the Alps and the Dolomites.

While individual members have travelled further afield in pursuit of their passion with trips to practically every European country as well as South Africa, S America, N America, Canada, Thailand, Antarctica, Australia, New Zealand and Jordan to name but a few of the exotic destinations!

The club has its own hut, ‘Cefn Goch’ in Deiniolen, North Wales as well as reciprocal rights with the Lancashire Climbing & Caving Club who have a hut near Coniston.

New members welcome — see membership for details on how to join!
