Topic - Membership of the Climbers' Club

Frank Cannings on 02 Mar 2013
I joined The Climbers' Club in 1966 when I was 19. To save you calculating I’m now 66 and I proudly class myself as an “old-fart”.

The Club was then progressive in Wales and the south of England and most leading climbers of the day aspired to membership. CC members led the pioneering of rock climbs in Wales and the South. I don't believe that dominance applies today: leading climbers now seem to avoid the CC.

Currently only 14% of Climbers' Club members are under the age of 40, while 25% are over 65.

I've put together a satirical video of an imaginary CC AGM:

I’d like to ask UKC climbers for their views about the Climbers’ Club and whether they aspire or otherwise to membership. What attracts you, what puts you off?
