Carlisle Mountaineering Club

Carlisle Mountaineering Club Ltd is a long established club, close to the English Lake District. We have regular evening and weekend meets throughout the year including summer & winter climbing. Although we are based in Carlisle, we have members throughout Cumbria & beyond.

The club currently has over 100 members, from a wide range of backgrounds and ages, some of whom climb hard & some less so! You can generally find someone who wants to climb at your grade.

We welcome new members and encourage anyone thinking about joining to come along to a meet first & meet some of our members. We do not have any facility to teach climbing but we can put you in touch with people who can should you wish to learn.

Upcoming Club Meets

The main purpose of the club is to support members and facilitate climbing, mountaineering and walking visits to crags, other hill areas and winter climbing venues. We organise, fairly loosely and flexibly, a series of evening and weekend meets locally and further afield.
