Welcome to The University Of Sheffield Mountainerring Club
We are the University of Sheffield Mountaineering Club - climbing and walking our way around Sheffield and beyond
If you are new to climbing, as many of our members were when they first arrived, university is a great opportunity to give it a go. There is a wealth of experience within the club and you'll be surprised by how far you can go in a year! We also have a large range of climbing gear belonging to the club which anyone is welcome to borrow, so there's no need to have equipment of your own to begin with.
If competitive climbing is your thing, we have an excellent climbing team who regularly compete all over the world and recently came 4th overall in the European Universities Sport Climbing Championship in Croatia! We also encourage everyone, whatever their ability, to compete in NUBS, BUCS and Varsity - if nothing else, it's great fun!
If you're interested, join our Facebook group and come along to our freshers events, or come and see us at the sports fair. Alternatively, just come along to the Cobden View Pub in Crookes on a Wednesday night and meet everyone.
The best way to keep up to date with what's happening is by joining our Facebook Group. People regularly post on there with their own plans which anyone is welcome to tag along with, and all club events will be posted on there too. Also make sure to visit our website for the full calendar of events throughout the year.
To improve everyone's climbing, whatever their level, and to spend as much time outdoors and in mountainous areas as possible! Chiefly, our aim is to make sure everyone enjoys themselves!
We usually train at the Foundry Climbing Center in Kelham Island, and can be found there on Monday evenings and Wednesday afternoons. This is usually followed by a trip to the pub. When the weather is nice, we will get the bus out to the Peak District. At the beginning of the year, we will have club members walking people from Endcliffe to the Foundry so don't worry if you don't know the way!
Monday - 7 to 10pm Wednesday - 1pm onwards Wednesday evening pub - 9pm onwards
