First Things First: Climbing.

What sets SMC apart from other climbing clubs? Simple. Our #1 focus is to providing as many opportunities for members to climb together as possible - all free. We're talking hundreds of rock, ice, and glacier climbing and mountaineering events, at all levels, from an evening to multiple weeks in length, year-round. All you need is an SMC membership to put your name on the interest list.

Smarter, Safer, Stronger

Members attend on-site field trainings held at great locations year-round: free rock, ice, snow and glacier climbing and mountaineering training. In addition, SMC offers paid live online training which pre-qualifies attendees for all climbing events, training events and expeditions. Free unlimited access to live online training and a club mentor is included in Full Membership.

Partners and Perks

A wide spectrum of opportunities within the SMC community ensures members will widen their circle of connections and find more climbing partners - reliable partners in your area who share your dedication to adventure.

We provide the individuals in our community inclusive experiences at all skill levels, and they thrive. More member benefits such as significant gear discounts, free loaner gear, automatic skills tracking, and special deals abound. See all member benefits.
