LUMC- What’s going on at the start of semester one?

Take a look below for some of the things we’ve got lined up in September and October. It’s going to be a busy couple of months that offers something for the new, the experienced and those who like to socialise.

Fresher’s Fair- Thursday 22nd & Friday 23rd September

Come on down to Fresher’s Fair! We’ll be in the sports hall- it won’t be hard to miss us! We’ll be there to say hi, answer your questions and let you know about all the exciting things we have lined up for you. There might be some challenges too…

Awesome Walls- Beginner Sessions- 26th September- 7th October

Throughout the first two weeks after fresher’s week, we will be providing you with the opportunity to learn to indoor climb. Learn how to tie your knots, keep yourself safe and master the art of belaying. Learn the basics indoors so you can progress to real rock on our fresher’s climbing trip!

Uni Bouldering Wall followed by Hope & Anchor- Tuesday 28th Septemberimage5

Come get a taste of our bi-weekly bouldering sessions in the handily located uni sports centre. Whether you’ve been climbing before you could walk, or this is your first step onto the wall, we have routes to cater for all.

After a hard session bouldering, it’s always time for a well-earned beverage. Luckily, it’s a short walk to the Hope & Anchor for super cheap drinks and great value food- a great way to make some new friends.




Fresher’s House Party- Saturday 1st October

Expect silly games and a jelly-fuelled showdown between old and new committee members. To find out what else lies in store, you will just have to come along and find out. A fantastic way to get to know other members and let your hair down after your first proper week at uni.


Hangar Monday’s- Intro Night- Monday 3rd October

If you want some more bouldering action then The Hangar is the place to be. With over 1000sqm of wall to be climbed you’re never going to get bored! There are routes for all abilities and the friendly staff and club members will be on hand to give you guidance should you need it. There’s good reason so many of our members spend their evenings here!


Fresher’s Walking Day Trip- Saturday 8th October


Your first chance to get out into the mountains. As always, everyone is invited and we cater for all abilities. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city for a delightful day of adventure and stunning views.


Fresher’s Climbing Day Trip – Sunday 9th October

Get out and use those newly learnt climbing skills on some real rock! The Peak District lies ahead for an action packed day of testing your strength and nerves.


Movie Night – Friday 16th October

Enjoy a nice evening in with the club and watch a few mountaineering movies. From climbing to winter walking, this night will get you psyched for the year ahead!

Climbing Weekend Trip- Fri 21st– Sun 23rd October/ Climbing Day Trip Sat 22nd October

If you just can’t get enough of LUMC and climbing, this is the weekend for you, two whole days of climbing goodness with two whole nights of LUMC shenanigans.

If you want your slice of climbing fun but can’t commit to the whole weekend, fear not! We will be running a day trip on Saturday to meet up with the weekend climbing group so everyone can get together and let the fun times roll.

Walking Day Trip- Sunday 23rd October

Those who prefer keeping things a little closer to the ground will get the opportunity to hit the hills with our second walking day trip of the year. It will promise good routes, good company and a good rest in the pub at the end. If only we could promise you good weather!



This is only a slice of what we’ve got planned in September and October, November and December promise even more opportunities to learn new skills, meet new people and try new things.
