Welcome to SMC Journal New Routes
This site enables access to all new route descriptions, notes and comments that have been published in the Scottish Mountaineering Club Journal since the last definitive SMC guidebook series (2001 – 2018). Over 9000 routes can be viewed on any phone, tablet or computer that has an internet connection. The content of this site will be updated regularly, enabling rapid dissemination of new route reports.
New routes are recorded in the Scottish Mountaineering Club Journal which is published annually. In addition, new route descriptions are stored in a database which forms the basis for SMC guidebooks. The database aims to be comprehensive and currently contains c.40,000 routes on 7,000 crags across Scotland. The route count increases daily as climbers discover and record new climbs.
When the Scottish Mountaineering Club was founded in 1889 it set out to ‘collect information regarding [Scottish] routes and to maintain comprehensive coverage and a historical record’. Please help us maintain this 130-year-old remit by recording your new climbs here.
