UWE Climbing is a mixed club of easy-going and friendly people, with the aim of going climbing and having as much fun as possible. We are here for anyone who wants to join regardless of age or ability. Don’t hesitate if you’re not sure how to climb or would like some help, we are all willing to offer advice ranging from how to get started with getting up a wall, to buying your first set of climbing shoes, to completing that really hard route you’ve been trying for months. We also gladly welcome experienced climbers to join and continue their training.
Tickets for our first trip of the year are now live. The trip is to the northern Peak District from 10th-12th November and will hopefully include climbing at outdoor venues such as Stanage edge. It is required for the trip that you have a belay sign of at the CFS and own you own harness, belay device and climbing shoes. Do not buy the drivers ticket unless you have directly spoken to a comittee member about it. More details will be released closer to the date.
In September we opened our membership page, the cost of membership this year is £50. Once you join you can climb with us as often as you want, so you can take on as much as suits you. There are various activities to take part in; bouldering, lead climbing, trad climbing and slacklining to name a few. Our typical schedule is as follows:
The mothership and Church sessions will be starting as of the end of October.
The CFS sessions need to be booked through our website as we have a fixed capacity for the wall.
These are obviously not the only times are members are up for a climb, within our group chat many members will announce throughout when and where they are going to climb as a welcome invitation for others to join them, so you can always be sure you’ll have a fellow UWE climber to climb with.
Also, any time the weather is good enough, we try to make the most of it and get some outdoor day trips in. There are hundreds of crags in S. Wales and on the border that are appropriate for all skill levels and are all relatively nearby.

Not at all. During our on-campus sessions, we can provide harnesses free of charge to use for the evening and climbing shoes are not necessary either. At our off-campus sessions, the centres will have shoes and harnesses available to rent for a reasonable price.
If you do want to invest in your own kit, we will host a kit day at a local store where you can drop in and we can help you pick out the right harness and pair of shoes for you. Don’t worry if you can’t make our kit day though, everyone will be more than happy to offer you advice on the best brands, with many being more than willing to take you to the stores to help you whenever you're free.
