Welcome to the Ladies Scottish Climbing Club (LSCC) website. The LSCC is the oldest all-womens mountaineering club still in existence. This site will tell you a bit of our history, our programme of activities, how to join us, answers to some frequently asked questions and who to contact for more information.
Since its foundation in 1908 the aim of the LSCC has been 'to bring together women who are committed to mountaineering in Scotland and to encourage an interest in all aspects of mountaineering at home and abroad'.
Today our members are a group of women, who live all over Scotland, plus a few outside Scotland, who are united by a love of mountaineering and all that the Scottish mountains offer us in summer and winter. We climb, hill-walk, ski and generally explore the wild places. Our members are encouraged to try new things, and often get together outside the organised Club programme to do other outdoor activities, including kayaking, ski-touring and mountain biking.
The Club has a year-round programme of events (meets) in Scotland. We also have regular Club trips to the Alps in summer and, more intermittently, to places further afield including Greenland, the Himalayas, the US and South America.
Off the hills, local groups in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Perth and the Highlands organise their own programmes of winter slide evenings, climbing at indoor walls, and, weather permitting, cragging at local outcrops.
Thankyou for visiting our website.
