For awe-inspiring adventures welcome to the GMC

Welcome to Gwent Mountaineering Club (‘GMC’ or ‘gwentmc’ for short). We are a group of friendly and welcoming outdoor enthusiasts keen on all aspects of mountains and mountaineering. We hill walk, scramble, rock and ice climb, and generally mountaineer. We’re based in South East Wales and we hold mid-weekly and weekend climbing and walking events, social events and trips around the UK and abroad throughout the year.

Join like-minded people and make new friendships while improving your skills. Please contact John Jones or Jo Dodd to find out more, or see our Facebook page. You can come along at any time to ‘try us’ without obligation.
