Mountaineering & Hillwalking

Mountaineering is at the core of the club's activities
. From straightforward hillwalking to scrambling and long mountaineering days, DMC actively encourages mountaineering in all senses of the word.

We especially love to get out on the mountains in winter when the covering of snow adds to the beauty of the mountain landscape and the sense of wilderness. Whether it's winter mountaineering with ice axes and crampons or snowshoeing over fresh powder, our interests are broad and we make the best of the varied conditions Scotland has to offer. Some of us are also keen skiers and enjoy ski-touring and ski-mountaineering too.

The club also does summer and winter climbing, and arranges summer alpine mountaineering trips, e.g. to Switzerland, Italy and France.
