Club Membership

Membership of the ACC is open to anybody over the age of 18. The club is affiliated with the BMC (British Mountaineering Council), the UK representative body for climbers, mountaineers and hillwalkers.

By joining the club you will be able to attend our organised monthly meets, social events, and have access to the members chat and groups areas on the website. You will also become a club affiliated BMC member and enjoy the BMC Membership benefits listed on this page.

If you are interested in joining the club we suggest meeting us at one of the climbing walls or down at the pub before one of our monthly meets. 

See the Meet and Calendar sections of the website for dates and times, and use the chat area or contact form to get in touch.

You are also welcome to join us as a guest on one of our monthly weekend meets and can find us in the Broad Leys pub near the centre of Aylesbury on the Monday evening, two weeks prior to the monthly meet.

You do not have to be a member to come along on your first weekend meet although there will

be a small guest fee in addition to the normal nightly hut fee.
