​Who are we?

We are the University of Surrey Mountaineering Club, based in Guildford, Surrey. We're a friendly bunch, who mostly rock climb but some of us also enjoy winter mountaineering, alpine climbing and other activities.

We are a Team Surrey affiliated club who have placed highly in BUCS in the past and we are also increasing our presence at local inter-university bouldering competitions.

For the less competitive we do lots of social climbing and run weekend trips throughout the year.​

When do we climb?

We climb at Surrey Sports Park​, after which we all head to a bar, for drinks and a chat. 
Club sessions are:

  • Monday 19:30-21:30 (Experienced climbers only) 
  • Wednesday 15:00-17:00 (Beginner friendly) 
  • Friday 19:30-21:30 (Beginner friendly)


Where else do we climb?

We also aim to organise fortnightly weekend trips to crags around the country for trad and sport climbing as well as our annual Easter trip to Cornwall and several trips abroad to places like Fontainbleau, the Alps, and more!
