Welcome to the University of Strathclyde Mountaineering Club!

We are an adventurous and highly sociable club for people of all abilities interested in hillwalking, indoor or outdoor climbing, or any other mountain related activities!


We have day and weekend long trips throughout the year to all the most spectacular mountain areas Scotland has to offer, where we hike, climb, and swim in the hills by day, and socialise, share food, and occasionally sleep in village halls by night.


On a weekly basis, we have socials at Revolution on Thursday evenings, indoor roped climbing sessions at Glasgow Climbing Centre on Wednesday afternoons and bouldering at The Climbing Academy on Friday evenings.


Membership – what do I need?

1. Sports Union Membership – this is a flat £30 fee for the year (or £20 for one semester) which goes directly back to the club to fund various club activities and operations, including:

  • Personal accident and public liability insurance
  • Coaching fees, competition entry and transport costs, club equipment and external facility hire

2. Sports Club Bolt-on Fee – we also charge a £5 joining fee for the year (or £3 per semester) which is charged to subsidise additional sport specific costs such as buying and maintaining equipment. This fee is charged on top of the Sports Union membership and again, goes directly back to the club and participants taking part in our activities.
