The Junior Mountaineering Club of Scotland consists of five Sections, four in Scotland, (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Lochaber, and Perth), and the London Section which has members throughout England. Each of the Sections runs its own affairs and has a separate meets schedule and committee. Once a year a Whole Club AGM occurs and there is an annual joint meet.
The Glasgow Section of the JMCS is an active mountaineering club based in Glasgow. The club holds meets approximately fortnightly throughout the year, with larger gaps in the summer and over the Christmas period. Meets are generally to destinations within Scotland, as far North as Torridon for short weekends, although generally nearer, and to the islands or far North at long weekends. Activities of Club members include rock climbing, ice climbing, (both at all grades), summer and winter hill walking, ski mountaineering, downhill skiing, and road and mountain cycling. Club members are also active abroad during both summer and winter seasons.
Additionally a pub night is held in the Balcony Café above the Glasgow Climbing Centre (GCC) every fortnight on a Thursday. This is a good opportunity to meet club members, so if you are new to the club please contact the to let them know you're coming and we'll keep an eye out for you. We also hold informal meets at the GCC each Tuesday and Thursday, again if you let the New Members Secretay know they can make sure that a club member knows to look out for you.
Additionally the club has strong links with the SMC Western District and members are invited to SMC lectures and functions throughout the winter season. By special arrangement season tickets to SMC huts are also available giving access to the SMC's Lagangarbh, Ling, Naismith, CIC, and Raeburn huts at a fixed annual fee.
