Welcome

Welcome to the Marylebone Mountaineering Club, one of London’s friendliest clubs. With fewer than 100 members, you can get to know people over a fairly short time.

We welcome new members of all levels of experience.

Interested? Contact us via info@themmc.org.uk and tell us what you want to do outdoors.

Mountaineering

Mountaineering can range from walking and scrambling un-roped on higher peaks where the route may not follow a distinct, wide path to technical snow and rock routes in the Alps. An example of scrambling in the UK would be the Crib Goch ridge on Snowdon.

Bouldering

Some of the venues we visit offer bouldering opportunities such as The Peaks, Dorset, Dartmoor and North Wales. There is usually one and sometimes two trips to Fontainebleau a year.
