You climb on indoor climbing walls, and mountains are outside. So not much reason to join Mountaineering Scotland, right?
Actually, you couldn't be more wrong. Mountaineering Scotland is closely involved with the indoor climbing scene, involved in everythin g from simply improving your own skills right up to national and international competitions, and all points between. Here are just five of the many reasons you'll gain from joining.
You’ll be supporting – or benefiting from – this Mountaineering Scotland initiative to inspire young people to go climbing and support parents, schools, youth organisations and climbing walls.
Want to pit your skills against others’? Mountaineering Scotland and ClimbScotland run competitions for youngsters and adults – Paraclimbing too. We’re the national governing body for sport climbing.
We run a range of courses to help those wanting to improve their own climbing skills and those looking to help others to improve through coaching or advice.
Whether it’s a new rope or the latest climbing shoes, all that gear costs money, and the discounts you get through Mountaineering Scotland membership can make all the difference.
Accidents don’t just happen at outdoor crags. The civil and public liability insurance you get as a member of Mountaineering Scotland offers great peace of mind.
