Welcome!

Home to rock and ice climbers, hikers, cross-country skiers, and mountaineers in the National Capital. The outdoors is a year-round playground for the ACC's Ottawa section.

Our members enjoy hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, rock climbing, ice climbing, wilderness navigation and socializing. We regularly visit mountains in Ontario, Quebec, New York, New Hampshire, the Gatineaus, the Adirondacks, and the White Mountains. And some of our members travel the world.

Whether you’re a beginner or a veteran, we have activities that suit your experience level.
