We are a new sports society aimed at everybody from first timers to experienced climbers. The climbing society provides an opportunity to challenge yourself, build your fitness level and get involved in our weekly socials in a relaxed, no pressure environment with students from diverse backgrounds.
Currently the majority of our climbing is bouldering which is climbing without the need for ropes or harnesses on shorter walls which is perfect if you’re not a fan of heights. We also occasionally do indoor top rope climbing and have plans for outdoor bouldering trips when the weather is appropriate. Our regular climbing sessions are on Tuesday evenings at 8pm at Ravenswall near Ravenscourt park. There is a group of us who meet at Freddie’s bar at 7pm to travel together if you’re unsure how to get there. There are also opportunities to climb other days at different climbing walls depending on availability which are arranged through our members Whatsapp group.
In addition to this we meet up for regular socials including karaoke, open mic night, pub crawls and film nights.
Your climbing society membership costs £20 and gives you access to our discounted entry rate at All LLC centres on Mondays and Fridays at off peak times. The entry rate at Ravenswall for society members is £7 per climb which includes shoe rental and chalk. The regular student rate for those who are not society members is £16.20 (£12.50 plus £3.70 for shoe hire).
Non-members are welcome to come along on a Tuesday and climb with us although only members can get the discounted £7 entry.
