The club was formed way back in 1941 as The junior Mountaineering Club of Yorkshire (JYMC) and was subsequently changed to the Yorkshire Mountaineering Club in 1952.
Membership of the club is open to anyone with an active interest in the outdoors. Members’ interests include mountaineering, rock climbing, ice climbing, skiing, running, walking and cycling.
The club meets on most weekends/Sundays for walking or climbing and midweek at local outcrops and climbing walls.
Several social events are arranged throughout the year.
Quality rock climbing guide books for Yorkshire Gritstone and Limestone have been published by the club for many years.
The club owns property in Coppermines Valley above Coniston in the Lake District. It is always available to members at very reasonable rates and is also let out to outside groups for between 6 and 20 people.
By affiliation to the British Mountaineering Council (BMC) all members are covered for third party insurance and can also enjoy other benefits of BMC membership.
