What We Do

The Mountaineering Club is one of the most active clubs in the University.


The Club has already planned fortnightly weekend trips away during both semesters to local places such as Dartmoor, Swanage, Portland and The Brecon Beacons or for whole weekends to places further afield like The Lake District, North Wales or The Peak District. During the February and Easter vacations we organise trips to Scotland and Europe.


The club aims to run trips as often as possible, with weekend trips normally every three weeks and the free weekends with filled with day trips whenever possible. On weekend trips we try and do as many activities as possible, depending on whats available in the area we're going and also the weather! For more information on weekend trips have a look in the trips section of our website where you'll find logs from past trips and information on the areas we go to and the different activities we get involved in.


During the week we'll run trips to The Climbing Academy, Bloc and Red Point in Bristol for indoor bouldering and climbing, and during the summer months when there's more light we run evening trips to some of the local crags. We also run walks around the local area every second weekend. 


So whether your interest is hill-walking, rock climbing, scrambling or bouldering, and regardless of your experience, we will do something to suit you!
