Welcome to the official Loughborough Student Mountaineering Club (LSMC) website! This website is new for the 2014/2015 academic year so is currently sparse, but will grow as the year goes on.

The LSMC are based at Loughborough University (obviously) and we participate in all forms of mountaineering, from bouldering at the local indoor centre to winter skills courses in the Scottish mountains. We run regular trips throughout the year to various locations in the UK and abroad and these trips cater to all activity levels, from complete novices to experienced rock masters. If you are looking to join the club then head over to our Facebook to have a chat or come and see us at the AU Bazaar at the start of term.

This website acts as the hub for all of our various media outlets. You’ll find information on our planned trips, trip reports from the trips we’ve been on, information about the club and how best to make use of your membership and our forum where we organise trips and generally procrastinate (you’ll need to register/log in to view the forum). You can find out more about the club by mousing over ‘About’ in the top right and heading to whatever section interests you! You’ll find our most recent posts in the ‘News’ section at the top of the page, you can also sort by category from there if there’s something in particular that you’re after.
