Who are we?

The Climbing Club is a casual and competitive club for anyone to join, creating a relaxed social environment for trying and learning something new as well as making friendships that last longer than your university careers!  Our Club is perfect for novice Boulderers and Top-Rope climbers or seasoned Lead Climbers!

We meet on Mondays and Wednesdays between 7pm-9pm at the Sports Centre climbing wall.

The wall has 7 lines of roped climbing with grades varying from 3+ to 7a so there is plenty of climbing for you to do, both easy and challenging . We also have a bouldering wall with an over-hanging buttress, creating a wide variety of routes, challenges and some interesting moves! We are also home to a, hard to find, lattice board for stamina training and a finger board with varying sized ledges for training purposes!

Members of the club have access to harnesses when climbing on-site as well as club-owned ropes for learning knots, and lead climbing!

Competitions and Coaching

For 2023/2024, we hope to compete in the Midlands University Climbing Competition and BUCs. We also hope to take a group of climbers to the ClimbingWorks International Festival for the Fun Climb session, which involves fancy dress and some wacky boulder problems!

This year, we have a weekly coaching plan and we will have training sessions outside the usual club sessions with a climbing coach to help us develop and improve. We also have a number of training guides and drills for our members to access!
