Mountaineering

A group of students with a passion for the outdoors, adventure and excitement If you love the outdoors or just want to try something new, be sure to come along and meet us!

 

A society full of energy both outdoors adventuring across the UK (sometimes beyond!) and indoors on the climbing walls. We are a group of Cov Uni students who share a common passion for the outdoors and climbing things, be it on a wall or even up the stairs at Whitefriars on a Monday night for our weekly social.

As a club we run frequent weekend trips across the UK for a variety of activities, such as outdoor climbing, hiking, winter mountaineering, walking, caving… we love to get out there and try everything so if there is anything you wanted to try we could look into running the activity on one of our trips. We frequently venture out to the Peaks, Lakes district, North Wales and Yorkshire. Even if you don’t want to climb, and no matter what your ability or experience, we have something fun for everyone, our trips offer a chance to have an ultimate outdoor experience and make some of the best memories of your time at university.  

We also do a weekly indoor rock climbing session, and many members also choose to go more often, so you’ll always be able to find someone to climb with.

When the sun goes down and the climbing gear is put away, every Monday we have a weekly social at Whitefrairs pub, and will also have many more exciting socials lined up for the year, including our exciting Fresher’s events for when you arrive!
