Hertfordshire Mountaineering Club

Welcome to the HMC

The HMC is an active and friendly club based in Hertfordshire made up of enthusiastic people of all ages (18 and over) and abilities who share a passion for adventure, mountains and the outdoors. Our members can usually be found exploring the crags and trails of the UK’s best mountain terrains taking part in activities that include walking, hiking, rock climbing, scrambling, mountaineering, alpine mountaineering mountain biking, and sometimes ski touring.
