Every week, we run a minibus to one of our two local big climbing walls, Reading Climbing Centre and Calshot. Both these walls boast impressive lead climbing areas, some awesome top rope lines and Reading has a fantastic bouldering area.
We also run weekly training nights in the University Bouldering wall. These include sessions aimed at beginners and nights for experience climbers to train together and share tips. The bouldering wall is available all week outside of these times, and is included as part of the University’s Sport and Wellbeing membership.
We’re a member of the Athletic Union at SUSU and we represent Team Southampton at several competitions throughout the year. This includes the national student BUCS competition and the London Universities Bouldering Event (LUBE). We send a strong team to every competition, but we always we make sure there’s space for everyone to get involved, so if you just want to give a comp a go you can! As we help out with the resetting of the Uni Bouldering Wall, we also organise several casual comps at home throughout the year.
