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.
European Military Climbing Championships 2015
This year the Inter-service climbing competition was held alongside the European military Climbing Competition at the Beacon Climbing Centre in North Wales.
It was the first time in 5 years that the UK has hosted the European Tournament.
The women’s Team did very well – winning the inter-services with Hannah Stock securing the title of Women’s Champion (the team took 1st, 3rd and 6th).
Many thanks to Air Tanker, Entre-prises, DMM, Arc'teryx and Ultimate Outdoors for their excellent support to the RAF Team!
