Climbing Club

Become a part of one of the newest Olympic Sports! Climbing is a great way to get stronger, make friends, and have fun!


As a club, we usually go bouldering at The Project in Poole twice a week, rope climb at Harewood Collage in Boscombe once a week (Time TBC). In addition to this we also try organise outdoor trips to places like Portland and Swanage or indoor trips to other centres. 


Membership is £35. Included in the membership is:

  • Club discount entry price at The Project (£4 a climb instead of £8) - days and times TBC - (£3 for optional shoe hire too)
  • Club discount price at Harewood Collage (£3 a climb instead of £6) days and times TBC
  • British Mountaineering Council (BMC) Student Insurance (This allows you to climb outdoors with us - you are even covered when you go off on your own adventures! This also includes discounts for shops and other BMC events during the year
  • Ability to sign up for one climbing based Strength and Conditioning session a week (days and times TBC (These take place at Sport BU with BU Climbing Club members and you sign up to them on the AUB/BU climbing Facebook page)
  • Ability to borrow club equipment from the AUB storage and BU storage (harnesses, helmets, bouldering matts, clipsticks, ropes, tents, etc)
  • Trips to competitions, other centres, and outdoors throughout the year
  • Invitations to club socials (we often hold these with BU climbing club)


There is absolutely no pressure to come along to all sessions and all experience levels are welcome! Since we are good friends with the lovely BU Climbing Club, the majority of our club activities are done together, so expect to see some new faces if you do join us!


If you’d like to come along and give climbing try: either attend one of our taster sessions (we put information about these on our Facebook page) or send us a message on Facebook page so we can arrange for someone to book you in as a guest for one of our club sessions at The Project (you will have to pay the normal £8 entry and an optional £3 for shoe hire to do this). See you at the wall!
