Welcome to the UEA Climbing Club, one of the biggest clubs on campus!
Climbing is the perfect club to join if you want to challenge yourself, make a great bunch of friends and try a new sport! The Climbing Club is open to all abilities and levels and many people who join the club have never climbed before. We are also committed to making sure that all members are trained to the highest safety standards.
We host 4 sessions a week which are included in your club membership fee. You will need to book in for these sessions as we have to control the numbers currently. These sessions are only open to club members who have completed their training and sports park induction.
Monday at 3:00-5:00pm
Wednesday at 3:00-5:00pm
Friday at 7:00-10pm
Sunday at 4:00-6:00pm
On the way into sessions sign in at the sports park reception, receive your stamp and you'll be ready to climb!
We also run a weekly trip to the local bouldering centre (Highball Norwich). Highball is an amazing facility with loads of bouldering, auto-belays and a fully kitted out gym! This takes place every Wednesday evening from 6pm-9pm!
Head over to our Facebook for more info on how to attend these sessions!
What do we provide?
We provide harnesses for all sessions as well as safety training so it doesn't matter if you don't own any kit. We also provide all kit for trips throughout the year.

We run a range of trips throughout the year suiting all ability ranges. From beginner to advanced as well as our yearly trip to Portland in Dorset and an abroad trip in July where we have previously been to Switzerland, France and Germany.
When we’re not Climbing, we love socialising and we have a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic socials throughout the year so there’s something for everyone to enjoy. In the past, we have been on bar crawls, slacklined, had BBQs, gone trampolining, done film screenings, formal socials and much much more!
Completing your training:
Once you have paid your UEA sport membership and climbing club membership fee you will need to sign up for a training session by purchasing a ticket (they are listed as climbing training session). When you have been trained you will then book an assessment through the Sports park reception desk to make sure that you are capable of using the climbing wall safely. This assessment will cost you only £5 and is required by the Sports park and lasts for 12 months. Please do not book yourself onto the regular climbing sessions until you have passed your assessment.
