The Alpine Club Climbing Fund has £10,000 to give away to alpine climbers every year!

The Alpine Club

The Alpine Club is the oldest national alpine club in the world and has been involved in the development of international mountaineering since 1857.

In 2007 the AC decided to celebrate their 150th anniversary by creating a new fund to help alpinists to explore and climb exciting new challenges all over the world.

Joining The Alpine Club

Full Membership: To become a Full Member, we ask that you have climbed a minimum of 20 respectable alpine routes or peaks, or the equivalent of this in other ranges and wilderness areas.

Aspirant Membership: To become an Aspirant Member, you will have had at least one trip to the Alps or other high mountain area, and have ascended some routes and/or peaks.

The AC Climbing Fund is funded by an internal investment grant of £75,000 from the AC and an annual donation from the well known-climbing equipment suppliers, First Ascent.

AC Climbing Fund: £10,000 Available

Every year the AC Climbing Fund has £10,000 available to help expeditions to explore new areas and climb exciting peaks all over the world. The Fund is open to AC members only so join now to take advantage of this fantastic offer and receive the support of the most famous alpine club in the world.

Expeditions seeking AC Climbing Fund grants need only have one AC member to be eligible (although the more AC members on the trip, the more the grant will be!)
