The climbing club is well known for being a social hub; we are all friendly, welcoming individuals who look out for one another whether you’re a new or an old member. The friendships made in this club often continue way after people have graduated. The welfare of club members is essential for such a lively group of people, and we like to make sure everyone is comfortable and happy!

Climbing is as much a mental sport as it is a physical sport, it requires problem solving and determination as well as strength to achieve those rewarding top-outs. This is why our welfare sec’, Leona Goodey, is around to guide and support anyone who needs it, so that everyone can get as much out of the club as possible.
