UAL Climbing was founded in 2012 as a way for climbers within UAL to meet and climb together. Our aim is to help introduce climbing to people who haven't tried it before, and provide a space for enthusiasts to team up and share.

Climbing is a social sport even though it’s not team-oriented - we’ll keep it informal, relaxed, and open to anyone who wants to meet new people. It’s also really brilliant for mental wellbeing and can be a good way to find focus or de-stress.

As students in London we are sadly without easy access to proper rock and mountains, however, to break up the monotony of plastic holds we organise trips for our members to get out into nature and in touch with some real rock! In the past few years, club members have been to Newquay, Tunbridge Wells, the Peak District, Dorset, Tenerife, and Fontainebleau, for outdoor climbing.

We would love to hear from you, and we’re always open to new ideas!
