the cultivation of mountain craft, and the promotion of good fellowship among climbers;
the study of the high mountains of the world, the gathering of facts and the observation of phenomena pertaining to them;
the production of a series of illustrated publications to present a complete description of the alpine mountains of the world;
the scientific exploration of high mountain elevations and of the regions lying within or about the Arctic and Antarctic circles;
the conservation and preservation of the mountain environment; and
the representation of the interests and concerns of the American climbing community
The AAC is a not-for-profit organization supported by gifts and grants from individuals, corporations and foundations, income from restricted endowments, membership dues, and the sale of publications.
