Arizona Mountaineering Club - Since 1964 Pages

The Arizona Mountaineering Club was founded in 1964 for the purpose of promoting and teaching safe rock climbing. Today, the AMC has over 300 members who are involved in all aspects of rock climbing, mountaineering and various other outdoor sports. AMC members range from the occasional weekend climber to those who attempt the highest mountains around the world.

If you don't already know how to climb, the AMC offers Beginning OUTDOOR ROCK CLIMBING classes with an emphasis on safety and self-rescue. Also offered by the AMC are classes in ANCHORS/ROPEWORK and LEAD CLIMBING.

If you already have climbing experience, join other members on some of our monthly outings -- a great way to meet new friends and discover new climbing areas.

Our Land Advocacy Committee works on issues related to maintaining and improving access to climbing areas.

The AMC meets the 4th Monday of most months at 7:00 P.M. at the Granite Reef Senior Center, 1700 N. Granite Reef Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85257 (see the calendar for the most up to date information). Dues are $30 per calendar year for a single membership and $35 per calendar year for a family membership. AMC monthly meetings provide another great way to meet other climbers. After a short business meeting, a program is presented to the members. Programs range from slide shows by famous and not-so-famous climbers to rock climbing videos and everything in between.

The AMC library is stocked with numerous climbing books, magazines and videos. These materials are available free of charge to members at the club meetings.
