A huge part of this society is the climbing. We have several very experienced indoor and outdoor climbers. As well as frequent weekend trips away to the Lake District, Peak District, Yorkshire Dales, North Wales and more (giving us lots of outdoor climbing opportunities). We also run weekly trips to Warwick University's indoor climbing centre and The Ballroom Climbing wall, an indoor bouldering wall in Coventry city centre.
Another favourite in this society is hiking. Most weekend trips away will offer hiking of some description, from gentle strolls with lunch at the pub, to full days, scaling epic mountains. We have also had workshop walks, learning navigational skills along the way, run by experienced outdoor experts.
If you're after something a little more extreme, you may want to give ghyll scrambling a go. This involves getting a wetsuit on, and making your way up a river. It involves swimming, climbing, jumping and provides enormous fun. Trips to the Lake District and Wales will often have good opportunities for this activity, although you will need your own wetsuit!
we also have a thriving social side to the society, with regular meets at Ivy house and then onto Quids student bar. As well as other events and activities throughout the year. Even if you’re not interested in coming on trips with us, there’s still plenty for you to get involved in with us!
