Welcome to RAF Mountaineering Association
Founded in 1948 and the oldest of the 3 British Service mountaineering bodies, the Royal Air Force Mountaineering Association (RAFMA) is responsible to the RAF Sports Board for the sport of mountaineering within the Royal Air Force. RAFMA provides members with a variety of outdoor opportunities – hill walking, rock climbing, ski mountaineering, indoor climbing and meets in the Alps and Greater Ranges. The latest meets itinerary can be found on the Meets Page.
Participation Statement: RAFMA recognizes that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions and involvement.
RAF Climbing Competition 2014
This year the RAF Climbing Community descended on Awesome Walls, Sheffield for a day of reaching, holding, clipping, falling, watching, chatting, cheering and ultimately a lot of fun. Seasoned climbers with years of experience mixed with novices to complete and compete in a range of climbing activities.
The RAF Climbing Competition is an annual event. It aims to encourage novice climbers to get more involved and push their climbing in a safe and rewarding environment. The competition also serves as the selection event for the RAF Sport Climbing Squad. The event is organised and supervised by the RAF Mountaineering Association (RAFMA), a long standing body that enables personnel of all levels to get out into the wild all over the world. Visit the Climbing page for full details and results.
