Watt is Mountaineering?

Mountaineering covers everything from hill walking and trekking to scaling the highest mountains, steepest cliffs and everything in between.

We run either a weekend bothy trip or a day trip every weekend across both semesters giving our members access to some of the best walking and climbing in the UK. Climbing sessions are ran every Monday evening at the Oriam in addition to Wednesdays informal at the local Edinburgh climbing walls.


By joining the Mountaineering Club you have the chance to represent the University at the BUCS Nationals Climbing Competition.
