Mountaineering

Mountaineering at Loughborough is for anyone who enjoys climbing, walking, mountain biking, skiing, alpine climbing, ice climbing, and bouldering. It is safe to say that we have something on offer for everyone, no matter what level you are.

Athletic Union Club

Our club hosts regular trips to the local climbing walls including:

Throughout the year we host numerous organised trips and the club aims to support any mountain-based activity. Trips will typically include a variety of activities including walking, climbing and scrambling and cater for all abilities.

We have a couple of training sessions each week to keep our fitness up, one session is cardio based and the other one is strength based. The club owns climbing, camping and mountaineering kit which is available to borrow if needed. Our more advanced climbers compete in the BUCS Climbing Championships.
