Welcome to the KMC, the Manchester mountaineering, rock climbing and walking club. We are an active club with regular meets throughout the year.
Advance Notice Meets
Welcome to the KMC, the Manchester mountaineering, rock climbing and walking club. We are very active, with meets every week of the year. You can view our Meets List to see what we have planned over the forthcoming months. Come and join us.
You don't have to be a member to come along to a Meet. We welcome new members to the club, and we encourage you to get to know us first by joining us on some meets.
We have year round evening meets, usually on Wednesdays. During the darker, winter months we climb indoors at a local climbing wall. When there is enough light in the evenings we go outdoors to various local crags, mostly within an hours drive of Manchester City Centre. You can find out where we are each week by viewing our Meets list, which is regularly updated. Last minute changes can be found on our Scribble page.
Our picture gallery archive will give you an idea of the activities that club undertakes. We are a diverse club that enjoys activities including Rock Climbing, Scrambling, Hill-Walking, Winter Mountaineering and Ice Climbing, Wild Swimming and Fell Running.
The club owns a very fine mountain hut near Llanberis in Snowdonia, North Wales. We frequently hold meets there, and it can also be booked by outside groups. The hut is ideally placed for climbers who enjoy the delights of the local slate quarries, as well as being next to some of the best rock climbing and mountaineering locations in the UK.
