About Us

The club's history, future, commitments and about them all




The North East Wales Mountaineering Club

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.



AGM & Membership Renewals

NEWMC held our Annual General Meeting...


At the Boardroom Climbing Centre we held our annual general meeting, to review all the activities of the club over the past year, discuss the proposals for the coming year, approve the club's finances, and elect a new committee

Thanks to everyone who attended the night, we made some real progress, and hopefully, we'll see the next year as our strongest yet.

The following members were elected into committee positions:


President               -           Matthew Cooke

Secretary               -           Thomas Cooke

Meets Officer       -           Emma Rooney

Kit Officer             -           Tom Furey

Treasurer              -           Anthony Cooke


All the officers of the club committee would be happy to accept any help in their roles from members who want to be more involved.

NEWMC were proud to host Sir Chris Bonington as our Annual speaker this year.


Sir Chris Bonington is Britain's best known mountaineer and one of the most successful expedition leaders in history. He began climbing at the age of 16 and has undertaken 19 Himalayan expeditions, including 4 to Everest.  He is renowned for having made many first ascents in the Alps and all the greater ranges of the world.

Sir Chris was the first mountaineer on the lecture circuit and, this October, he presented his Life & Times for NEWMC, covering his sixty years spent in the mountains.  With original images and raw footage, this was a rare opportunity to hear about some of the greatest climbing adventures of the twentieth century.


With nearly 400 tickets sold, this was our most successful annual lecture yet, and provided members with a great chance to meet a true pillar of mountaineering history while raising funds for the club's activities

Avalanche Safety

4x Avalanche Transcievers available to Members


Continuing our commitment to member's development and safety, the club has bought four high specification avalanche transcievers, Shovels and probes to encourage and enable safer moutnaineering both in the UK and abroad

Our more experienced members will be happy to show you how to use these devices before you take them out, to ensure that you're best positioned to remain as safe as possible in the mountains.


If you have any suggestions on how we can further help increase members safety in the mountains, please let us know
