The AC would like support the building of a new hut on the slopes of Mt Kazbek in the Caucasus, Europe's highest and wildest mountain range. The hut is to be named after Douglas George Freshfield, one of the ACs most illustrious ex-Presidents. The Freshfield Hut Appeal provides many benefits to AC Members and we are hoping that members can make a contribution, however small.
The AC is supporting a campaign to save this climbing area in Turkey. Please read about the campaign here
