The Climbing Club cater for those who have never climbed before to those who want to climb recreationally, as well as those who are regularly on climbing walls and are wishing to compete.

The 12 metre wall boasts 26 lead and top roping walls including impressive overhang, vertical and slab surfaces, bouldering area and Abseil cave plus Tufa, arétes, crack climbs and high-level stances.


The Climbing Club compete in the National University Championships managed by BUCS.

Club Trials

There are two weeks of trials and taster sessions which begin in the week following Freshers' Week. These sessions are for new and existing members to train without cost or commitment.

You must pre-register to attend at either the Athletic Union Sports Fair or the SU Fresher’s Fair where you will be given further information.

All members must have signed up to the Club at the end of the two week trial.


Hertfordshire Sports Village's own Climbing Co-ordinator takes the Wednesday session and is on-hand to instruct beginner climbers and challenge those more experienced.
