About the Club

MUMC train at least twice a week at indoor venues in Manchester. Our main indoor climbing session is on Wednesday afternoons at Manchester Climbing Centre. For those that fancy a spot of indoor bouldering, we head to either The Depot Manchester, or Rock Over Climbing on Monday evenings. We also head out on regular meets to local outdoor venues (usually the Peak District) and a few times a year on weekend trips to North Wales, the Lake District, Pembrokeshire and Scotland. On top of this there is the annual week-long trip to the mecca of bouldering, Fontainebleau in France. Regular escapes from the big city are guaranteed for everyone!

Club Philosophy

We aim to introduce newcomers to the sport of climbing by providing support and instruction in basic skills and essential safety aspects. We also cater for more experienced climbers by organising a multitude of exciting trips and socials, and are committed to increasing the enjoyment of climbing by providing a social framework for all club members.


Our climbing team has become stronger and stronger over the past few years. We have a selection process at the beginning of the academic year to aqure the best and most committed climbers in Manchester. The team will then compete in both BUCS and Christy Cup competitions aswell as smaller friendly competitions such as NUBS. There will be club perks for anyone who makes the team including free coaching, free transprt to and from competitions and cheaper membership to the club
