If you are an old hand at climbing

If you are already a competent climber and can confidently belay, you do not need to book a taster session and can turn up on whenever. We will stretch your skills, going lead climbing at Westway on Wednesday afternoons. We will help to improve your bouldering on Friday evenings as well as running dedicated training sessions on Tuesday mornings led by our Team Captain, Lily. We also compete nationally against all other universities in BUCS and LUBE (London University Bouldering Event - which we run!).
