Smart Mountaineering Club, is a mountaineering organization based in Philippines. The club has taken a significant part in the development of mountaineering in Philippines as well as sharing their effort and time for community services and environmental protection activities. SMC was founded in January 2004 with its 15 Core members. Main reason why they named it after a Telecom company because most of the Centro members that year were working at Smart Communications, Inc. Centro decided to expand the club so they begin to recruit additional members, Smartee or non-Smartee are welcome to join the club.

Unlike any other clubs, SMC offers a lifetime membership, whether you're still with Smart or not, you will always be welcome to join & be a part of any activities held by the org. To be able to fully become a true-blooded SMCnoy, one should at least complete the said requirements like attending Basic Mountaineering Courses (BMC), Simply Amazing Race (SAR), Training Climbs, Phys-T sessions, etc. The membership fee will be used as payments for BMC Speakers, Dogtag and Batch shirt.

The first ever SMC babies, Batch 1 was born in 2005 with a flying colors of 29 members. Batch UNO was inducted at Mt.

The following year 2006, Batch 2 with 25 neophytes was born. Batch DOS was inducted at Mt.

Year 2007, 21 rookies of Batch 3 was born. Batch TRES was inducted at Mt Pulag, Benguet and at Mt Calavite, Mindoro for the late inductees.

On year 2008, SMC didn't recruit a new batch due to tight work schedules of its members.

By year 2009, the club was back in the game and Batch 4 was born with its 28 greenhorns. Batch CUATRO was inducted at Mt.
