About the WBMC

Who are we?

The West Bromwich Mountaineering Club is a club run by and for mountaineers based in the West Midlands and surrounding areas. We have a diverse membership of over 200 people ranging from children to retirees who take part in a wide variety of mountaineering activities, including mountaineering, rock climbing, hill walking and camping. We welcome complete beginners and experienced mountaineers alike.

What do we do?

The WBMC organises a wide range of mountaineering meets throughout the year. These include single day Coach Meets to mountaineering areas in England and Wales and longer trips to these areas and further afield. We also run a wide range of social events, including dinner meets, evening walks and mountaineering slide shows. The full list of events for the current year is shown on the Meets List page of this site. The WBMC brings mountaineers together, so that friendships can be formed and a passion for mountaineering can be shared.

How to find us

We can be found every Thursday night from 9pm at The Red Lion in West Bromwich. Feel free to pop in and ask for the Mountaineering Club.

How to join

Please get in touch with our membership secretary (membership-secretary@wbmc.org) and they'll happy to tell you how to go about it. Prospective members must go through a probationary period, during which they must attend two mountaineering meets. We also like to see prospective members on at least one social meet during this period. After this, the committee should approve the application and you will be made an official member of the WBMC.
