Who Are We:

We are a 5-Star Bournemouth Unversity Club

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 climb as much as possible outside along the beautiful Jurassic Coast! If you already know how to rope climb and are keen to head out just drop a message in the group chat to find a belay buddy. Or, if you're new to ropes then look out for a rope course coming up or come along to our rope climbing session to get some guidance.

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: £50 for the year

Outdoor Membership: £20 

(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 is to ensure 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 memebrship of an affiliated BMC club and gives you insurance to climb with us (Outdoor Memberhsip).
