Barts and The London Alpine Club

This week we are shining the light onto our amazing Barts and the London Alpine Club! Get the low down on everything you need to know about this club below.

What makes your training sessions enjoyable?

On trips there is training on map reading and how to use climbing and winter gear, led by experienced members of the club.

Alternatively, if you'd just prefer to go for a walk/ scramble that is an option also.

What was your club’s biggest success of the past year?

The highlight last year was a 20 man trip to Iceland for 10 days!

So why should you get involved?

Alpine has a very friendly and welcoming community; you get to see some of the most beautiful places in the UK, and meet very interesting people, as well as learn some basic outdoor skills!

And a final fun fact about this club?

2017 was the 80th anniversary of the Barts Alpine club; it is one of the oldest in the UK!

Don't forget if you are a Barts and the London student, you can get involved and attend any of Alpine’s trips! Get in touch with the club committee via one of their social media pages below for more information.
