When and Where We Meet

  • Mile End Climbing Wall Every Tuesday 18:30-21:30. Look out for us in our ULMC t-shirts or ask a member of staff to point us out. We go to the Victoria, 110 Grove Road, Mile End afterwards for a pint.

Keep an eye out on the mailing list or Facebook for our other events:

  • Regular socials: Slacklining, Fairlop Boulders, meals out, pub crawls, Thorpe Park, picnics in the park- there’s something for everyone!

  • Day walks and climbs in various locations, just a short train journey out of London.

  • Weekend trips outside of London roughly once a month. This includes trad climbing, sport climbing, bouldering and/or hiking.
    You must be a member to come on trips. Cost is ~£40-50 which covers food, accommodation and transport for the weekend – BARGAIN! We also hire a guide for the fresher’s trips – so a great opportunity if you want to try outdoor climbing for the first time. We just ask that if you want to climb on a trip you must meet us at Mile End BEFOREHAND so we can go through the basics 🙂

  • We participate in the London University Bouldering Competition (LUBE).

  • Easter trip to a warm European destination for sport climbing.
  • Summer trips such as Bouldering in Fountainbleu, where we camp in France and climb for a week.

  • Summer trips to the Alps for mountaineering with ULGMC, the affiliated graduate chapter of our club.

  • Winter trip to Scotland – we hire a guide and stay for a week to do some winter walking and mountaineering.
