The SMC has just sent a new edition of Scottish Rock Climbs to the printers, laid out in the Wired design system. Pre-order is available now!
The SMC organises an annual aspirant meet in August which offers plenty of rock climbing options.
After a few years absence we are delighted to announce the return of a painting and drawing meet at Lagangarbh.
For what is now a traditional Autumn Lakes meet we are returning to the excellent Wayfarers' Robertson Lamb Hut in Langdale.
The SMC maintains a webcam and weather station located on top of the CIC hut. Being on the west coast of Scotland and the altitude the hut is situated at the hut is often bombarded by severe storms, especially in winter. The webcam faces the North Face of Ben Nevis, and in the middle of the picture can been seen North East Buttress and The Orion Face.
