About

The Lake District is a compact mountainous area in the north west of England containing so much and attracting so many with its scenery, culture and huge range of activities. Scattered amongst these fells is a stunning collection of crags with routes for everyone.

The Fell & Rock Climbing Club is the premier rock climbing and mountaineering club in the English Lake District. The Club was founded in 1906-07 and the first informal meeting was held at the Sun Inn, Coniston on the 11th November 1906. The first Meet was at the Wastwater Hotel on the 30th March 1907. Today, this highly active club has over 1100 members who are spread all over the world but who found their mountaineering origins in the Lakes.
