Wolverhampton Mountaineering Club – Who are we?
Our club currently has around 100 members who have a keen interest in all things mountaineering. We meet socially weekly and have formal meets on a regular basis throughout the year all over England and Wales, with a few meets further afield such as Scotland and the Alps. Members of the club also regularly arrange other meets and trips, whether it be a day to the peak district, a weekend in Wales or a week in Kalymnos.
When and where do we meet?
The Club meets every Tuesday we meet at the Great Western on Sun Street at 21.30. This is where we get to know new and prospective members, so if you would like to join please feel free to head down. We also meet at Wolf Mountain on the last Tuesday of each month at 19.30 before heading to the pub, so if climbings your thing then come find us.
You can find our meets program here. We usually organise the meets on the Tuesday before at the pub. We try to arrange lifts so as many people travel together as possible (and those who can’t drive have a lift!). If you can’t make the pub, then you can contact us here.
What do we do?
Members of the club participate in all of the usual mountaineering based sports, such as:
- Walking & Scrambling
- Ice climbing
- Mountain biking
- Road cycling
