The Potomac Mountain Club is the Mountaineering Section of PATC and is the premier rock climbing, ice climbing and mountaineering club serving the D.C. Metro area since 1944.

They are a diverse group of local DC area climbers who share a common interest in promoting safe climbing, conserving the outdoors, developing new climbers' skills and having fun ! Instruction is provided for those wanting to learn the basics.   This is not a school, but will get you started.   Climbs are local or further afield, nearly every weekend.  In winter, trips are organized for beginning and advanced climbers.
