Mountaineering

Anita on Beginner's Delight

Our Mountaineering Committee organizes rock climbing (sport, traditional, and multi-pitch), plus the occasional ice climbing, indoor wall climbing, or backcountry skiing trip.

We run trips all year. Some are day trips or after-work evening trips to local climbs, others are multi-day trips to more distant venues

If you're in doubt about your qualifications for a particular trip or what equipment you might need, ask the listed trip leader. We do have club equipment.

To register for a weekend trip, please try to contact the leader by the prior Wednesday.

Volunteer-led Activities to Resume after June 22nd

Although the COVID 19 pandemic is by no means over, AMC and the Berkshire Chapter are applying careful evidence-based risk management practices to chart a path forward for volunteer-led outdoor activities to resume safely. 

On June 22 we will begin offering volunteer-led activities in small groups employing social distancing measures. Group size will be capped at ten (10) participants including leaders. Activity leaders are receiving training on new trip safety protocols and procedures.
