Every year, the British Mountaineering Council hosts an International Meet, a weeklong gathering of climbers from around the world. The AAC will send two lucky members to this year’s Summer Meet, located in North Wales’ Llanberis Pass. Interested? Become a member of the AAC and follow the application instructions below.

BMC Meets promote international friendships and increase communication between national climbing organizations, provide an opportunity for overseas climbers to experience the diversity of UK climbing, give international guests an insight into British climbing traditions and ethics, and open international debate and discussion about current topics of worldwide concern in climbing and mountaineering. International guests are paired with British Hosts for—in the case of this Summer Meet—daytime cragging in the hills of North Wales, followed by evening presentations and discussions from and with international attendees. The BMC Meets are not intended solely for top-end climbers, as diversity enhances the conversation for all attending.

This summer’s Meet will be held May 8-15, 2011. Its theme is “Style and Ethics in World Climbing.” Selected Club representatives, chosen by the AAC staff, are responsible for paying airfare and a 95-pound fee that covers all food, lodging, and transportation within the UK.

Application Deadline: February 10, 2011

Application Materials: one-page climbing resume AND one-page cover letter detailing how you might add to the conversation on “Style and Ethics in World Climbing”
