Sussex Mountaineering Federation is a mountaineering club that organises trips regularly to the Lakes, North Wales and Peak District as well as coastal areas such as Dorset, Pembroke and Cornwall. The club promotes both climbing and walking. The core members of the club hold a wealth of experience between them. We welcome all ages and abilities, walkers, scramblers and climbers.

Historically, the club was a Federation of several clubs based in Sussex (hence the name), but is now a single entity club, whilst retaining an association with Hastings Rock and Fell Club.

The club is based in Sussex, but has members throughout England and beyond.

Up until recent years the format of the meets revolved around traveling to the destination by coach, but now private cars are the order of the day, whilst the enthusiasm of the members is as strong as ever.

Occasional trips abroad are undertaken. In recent years the Dolomites and Peru have been successful and enjoyable trips.

Always friendly and welcoming, the current members continue the traditions of the Federation, based on 50 years of mountaineering camaraderie. Be it in the local area for 'home' walking, cycling or pub meets or elsewhere in the UK or abroad, a SMF trip is a great trip.
