Queen Mary Climbing is one of the oldest clubs at the university to date. We are highly focused on outdoor activities and aim to go on multiple trips to outdoor locations throughout the year, with supervision from our experienced committee. Trip locations include; Sheffield/Peaks District, the Portland Cliffs and Fontainebleau Forest(France).
These trips are very inclusive and so it doesn't matter if you are a brand new climber who's just started or a very experienced one who wants to climb hard routes outdoors, you are still welcomed and we would love for you to come along.
Whilst we do have a high focus on outdoor climbing, we still do lots of indoor climbing and are keeping up with the changing rock climbing culture and the greater competition scene due to the advent of national and international climbing competitions in recent years. Our club competes in BUCS, which is an inter-university climbing competition and we are looking to enter and compete in other climbing competitions, due to our club expanding and doing a lot better.
QMC is incredibly welcoming and all of our current members are very friendly, some still being new to climbing and some being life long climbers. Its super easy to meet people at the society by attending the weekly sessions three times a week at Mile End Climbing Wall (Monday - 5pm, Wednesday - 3pm, Friday - 5pm).
Joining Queen Mary Climbing is a great way to start a new sport to get physically fit and in shape, meet new people, go on great trips and, most importantly, have lots of fun!

The sessions will be at Mile end Climbing wall; where we’ll give new climbers an intro to the sport and what they can expect.
Climbers will need to bring sports clothing and money; climbing shoes and chalk is provided by the club and the gym.
We’ll be training three times a week as a group, mostly at Mile End Climbing Wall, which is a 5 minute walk from campus. Sessions are very informal and definitely not compulsory: we just organise them to have a specific time to meet and regularly go out after our sessions.
Not all members will participate: we’ll hold selection processes closer to the dates of the competitions.
How to get Involved:
With every gym membership, you get a free 60 minute one-to-one session with trained instructors which includes:
