Welcome to the Ladies Scottish Climbing Club
the oldest all-women's mountaineering club still in existence, founded in 1908.
Since its foundation in 1908 the aim of the Ladies Scottish Climbing Club (LSCC) has been 'to bring together women who are committed to mountaineering in Scotland and to encourage all aspects of mountaineering at home and abroad'.
Today our members, who live all over Scotland and outside Scotland as well, are united by a love of exploring wild places. We have a programme of varied events mainly in Scotland where we climb, hill-walk and go mountaineering in summer and winter. There are regular Club trips to the Alps in summer and, intermittently, to places further afield including Greenland, the Himalayas and South America. Our members also get together outside the Club programme to do other activities, including kayaking, ski-touring and mountain biking. Guests and prospective members are very welcome to attend Meets but please contact the Membership Secretary in the first instance. Regional Events take place around Glasgow, Perth, Edinburgh and the Highlands with programmes of winter slide evenings, climbing at indoor walls, and, weather permitting, cragging at local outcrops
Enjoying the snow and sunshine
