Ipswich Mountaineering Club

The Ipswich Mountaineering Club (IMC) is a group of outdoors-minded people, mostly based in and around Ipswich, Suffolk, UK.
There are around 100 people in the club, most of whom are active in one or more of the following: Climbing - indoors, outdoors, rock, ice ..., Alpinism, Winter Mountaineering, Hill Walking, Mountain Biking, Caving, Skiing, and occasionally Kayaking. If you live in Ipswich, or the surrounding area, and want to take part in any of these activities then join the Ipswich Mountaineering Club.

Our club is active throughout the year, with a programme of events planned well in advance. In addition, during the summer months something happens nearly every weekend, with smaller groups of members arranging impromptu trips away. This means that if you want to head for the hills there is usually a group you can join-in with. During the winter season we organize social events, including slide shows that are given by our members. Most members of the Ipswich Mountaineering Club (IMC) are not qualified climbing instructors, so we do not formally teach new members how to climb; there are many excellent commercial organizations that do this, and we can give advice and make recommendations about who to contact. The best way to meet IMC members, and perhaps start learning to climb, would be to look on the web-site for meetings at local climbing walls, such as the beginners evenings run on the first Wednesday of most months.
