South Devon Mountaineering Club


The South Devon Mountaineering Club is based in Devon (most people are from roughly between Plymouth and Exeter). We welcome hill walkers, rock climbers and mountaineers of all aspirations.

Regular club meets (walking, climbing or both) are held locally, elsewhere in the UK and abroad, day trips, weekends and longer. In addition, the club serves as a meeting place for members to organise their own trips.

In addition, there are monthly pub meets, an annual winter dinner, members discounts available from local gear shops, and lovely SDMC T-shirts!

Adult new members are always welcome.

The SDMC meet locally on a regular bases throughout the year with the second Wednesday of the month being the official 'club night' where we are generally out and about but then meet in Sportsman's Inn Ivybridge in the winter.

In addition to the regular meets the club arranges hut trips throughout the UK and abroad and these attract a wide range of members depending on the location and activity. These trips rely on the enthusiasm and willingness of the members to identify and plan a trip and make it open to other members, remember that if there is interest in a trip and the booking of a hut is required the club will pay for this to secure the places and bank roll the funds.
