The Rock Climbing Club is open to all people interested in climbing indoors and outdoors, hiking and other mountain activities. Our members include freshers, visiting students, masters, PhD students and alumni.
There is no previous experience climbing needed. We organize skills courses for beginners and advanced coaching for more experienced climbers.
The club is meeting at the Castle Climbing Centre every Wednesday afternoon from 6 pm.
Beginners’ intro to tope roping & lead climbing will be held on Wednesday from 13:30 to 18:30 at the Castle Climbing Centre through the year (dates TBD).
Climbing coaching with a professional coach are on Friday 9am-11am at BlocFit in Brixton (South London) or Yonder in Black horse road (North London).
Other skills courses (trad climbing, multi-pitch, winter skills) will be held during trips.
