Climbing Club

Climbing and Mountaineering Club cover everything from indoor bouldering to mountain hikes.

We rock climb indoors and outdoors weekly, both bouldering and sport, with several hikes throughout the year. Look out for our bigger trips in the Winter and Summer breaks, too.

We also attend the South West University Bouldering Series competitions and hold a Varsity competition against Southampton. All abilities are welcome, and we provide all coaching, instructing, transport, and equipment needed for rock climbing as part of our membership.

The climbing may draw you in, but our weekly socials and charity fundraisers will keep you. Sound like fun? Give it a try.
