Established in 1972, SMC is a friendly club which caters for all abilities in a wide range of outdoor pursuits including rock climbing, mountaineering, mountain biking, hiking and skiing.

We meet every Tuesday from 20:00 at the Ridgeway Climbing Wall (Link Centre, Swindon), and on the second Tuesday of every month we meet at the Wheatsheaf Ale House pub in Swindon's Old Town at 21:00.

Club meets are organised most months to various parts of the UK. For more details, see the meets page and our gallery pages.
