York Alpine Club
York Alpine Club was founded in 1981, and exists for the encouragement of all kinds of mountain activities, including walking, climbing, skiing and biking, and is affiliated to the BMC. We pride ourselves on being friendly and welcoming to new members, whatever your level of experience.

We meet on most Thursday evenings at Brigantes Bar, 114 Micklegate, York (map) from 9.30 p.m. onwards. Best to email us to make sure someone will be there in case we are out climbing in the evening sunshine (or at a local wall)!

The Club's calendar of activities includes:

  • Weekend meets, staying in huts or camping
  • Sunday walks
  • Mid-week evening and weekend climbing, on local crags in the summer and at local climbing walls during the winter
  • Regular social events

Our members will also be found taking part in mountain marathons, fell running, mountain biking, road biking, orienteering, and possibly even caving.
