Welcome to GMC

Gwent Mountaineering Club (or GMC) is a group of friendly outdoor enthusiasts keen on all aspects of mountains and mountaineering. The club’s activities include hillwalking, scrambling, rock and ice climbing and general mountaineering. Based in South East Wales, we hold mid-weekly and weekend climbing and walking events, social events and trips around the UK and abroad throughout the year. 

For the opportunity to 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 ask us about one of our Taster Sessions for new members where you can come and find out about the club.
