Interested in escaping from the city? Want to exercise and socialize in the great outdoors? Then come and join the team of friendly, out-going and passionate people that are the University of Leicester Mountaineering Club. We strive to make our members feel included no matter where you are from or whether you have done climbing before or not. Even if you have never had the opportunity to try it, we can show you the ropes!

Our club prides itself on its experience, amount of equipment and ultimately upon our regular, bi-weekly outdoor climbing trips all over the country which, like the rest of us, will give you plenty of fond memories and stories about your time at Leicester. Taking you from as north as the Isle of Skye, to as south as El Chorro!

 

Coaching
We have a wealth of experienced and knowledgeable members to help you progress and get out on real rock. Included in this knowledge is up-to-date first aid training within our committee. On top of this we run regular training sessions at Social Climbing, lead by their expert coaches who know the best ways to improve your climbing technique. To complement our weekly sessions we run fortnightly trips all over the country, including the Lake District, the Peak District, Wales and Portland, where you can climb some real rock and experience the social side of the club.

 

Competition

While there is no pressure to be competitive in the club, we do cater for all levels of competitive spirit, from a relaxed inter-club bouldering competition, to more serious competitions such as BUCS and MUBS. However, the highlight of the competitive calendar is the Varsity climbing competition against De Montfort University, where we enjoy beating our rivals!
 

Social
As well as socialising in the hut or campsite after a hard day's climbing at the weekends, we also organise fortnightly socials including the famous roped-up social and the end of year ball. In addition, we also incorporate meals out as a club and film nights into the social calendar, so there is something for everyone to enjoy!
