The UKC and UKH Photo galleries
The UKC and UKH Photo galleries display over 1,000 new images each month - there are almost 200,000 photos in total - taken by climbers, mountaineers and hillwalkers who are out there in the world's wild places climbing and hill walking and recording their adventures for us all to enjoy.
Registered users can then vote and comment on each photograph and each week we publish the Top 10 Climbing & Mountaineering Photos/Galleries at UKC and the Top 10 Hillwalking and Mountain Photos/Galleries at UKH. These are the photos that are downloaded on to the UKC Top Photos App each week.
