Who Are We:

We welcome students and staff from BU and AUB.

We have won several awards over the years at the SUBU Activities Awards such as: 'Most Improved Club', 'Club with the Best Ideas’ and 'Club of the Year'.

We organise and run climbing trips all year round to popular indoor climbing centres around the country. We also lead outdoor excursions, such as outdoor climbing days, hikes and more!




Indoor Membership: £30 for the year

Outdoor Membership: £20 for the year

(Outdoor membership can only be purchased alongside an Indoor membership)

For people wanting to join after first term, we have a member’s indoor fee of £35 for new joiners after January. This ensures all people feel welcome and have the same access to all the clubs’ perks, and don’t miss out!

What Do The Memberships Provide You With?

Purchasing a membership to our society gives you a BMC student membership of an affiliated BMC club and gives you insurance to climb with us (Outdoor Membership). It also contributes to the clubs gear fund, giving you access to all our club kit, including harnesses, ropes and quickdraws. The memberships also allow you to join us at our weekly sessions at The Project at a reduced entry rate of £6.50 on our session times (below), allow you to join us on club trips, and of course give you access to all the amazing socials we have lined up for the year ahead.
