If you are interested in Climbing or Mountaineering, Drinking, or eating Cheese and want to be a part of a group of like minded nutters, you will find a friendly welcome from NEWMC
Established in 2007, the Club is fairly new, but already has nearly 50 full members throughout the country, although primarily based in and around North East Wales.
We run a varied programme of activities including regular outdoor meets both in the UK and abroad, midweek evening climbing at local crags and climbing walls (depending on the time of year!) and social events..
Potential members are free to join us for a couple of meets to see if they'll understand our sense of humour, and if you like us, we'd be glad to have you join us! You'd pay an annual membership fee, and then all activities cost whatever they cost, so that may just be a case of sharing the fuel cost, or paying for overnight accomodation & food somewhere.
For technical activities such as rock climbing or winter mountaineering, the club does not provide instruction for beginners, but once able to operate safely at a basic level, newcomers to the sport will find a wealth of experience within the Club to learn from.
Benefits of joining the club
If you wish to join us, there is usually a membership fee of £20 payable on joining, and then
The membership gives you benefits including access to discounted equipment, BMC Membership (providing Liability Insurance and access to their Travel Insurance Policies) and the club will contribute towards training and assessment costs if you wish to progress your personal skills and qualifications, although maybe you achieved some while in the service?
The Club has a selection of club equipment available for members to borrow, helping to bring down the cost of entry into the sport, ranging from Climbing Shoes & Harnesses through to safety equipment such as Avalanche probes and first aid kits.
We have a policy of only allowing over 18s into the club, although following a vote at our last AGM, we're exploring the issues of allowing under 18s to attend certain trips when acompanied by their guardians.
We also offer an associate membership, with details available on request.
