Freshers' Info

Firstly welcome to LUMC! Below are some of our FAQ's and we hope to address many of your concerns below, however if there is anything you still want to know, get in touch with the exec on Facebook or email 

Check out the info below to see what we will have on offer, as well as some useful links and tips.

We don't have a calendar quite yet, as this year is still being planned, but when we have plenty of activies planned we will update you all on the Facebook (search Lancaster University Mountaneering Club) and below!

Introduction Talk

Each year we have an intro talk to show you what we get up to!  We'll have a presentation for you to watch, as well as plenty of time afterwards to meet the exec and ask any questions you might have! Keep an eye on the Facebook page for more details closer to the time.

Want a sneak peak? Here is a link to last year's presentation so you can start getting excited!

New To Climbing?

In the first few weeks of term we usually hold Wednesday afternoon sessions to show people the basics of putting on a harness, tying knots and belaying a climber. This year we are making these sessions a lot more flexible to allow us to spread the teaching across the week. If you want to learn how to get started with climbing, message one of the exec on Facebook, or email us at

From there we will organise a time to meet you on campus to go through the basics, before then booking a session at the wall to put it into practice! All the gear can be borrowed from our gear stores, we'll ask what gear you need when we organise the lessons.

Day Trips

Beginners climbing seshs

Day trips are some of the best days with the club! We organise regular trips to local crags such as trowbarrow and silverdale, info of which is on our facebook page along with posted on the calender here so keep your eyes open! Trips usually have a small fee for club members to facilitate driving and other ammenities but it's never much! we can highly recommend getting some OS maps for these areas, such as these.

If you know how to climb outdoors safely, there are some excellent local crags in Silverdale such as Trowbarrow and Warton which are accessible by train or bicycle. 

Keep an eye on the Facebook page and weekly newsletters to see what other activities we have in store!
