MACS Participation Statement

Royal Holloway MACS recognises that climbing and mountaineering are activities with a danger of personal injury or death. Participants in these activities should be aware of and accept these risks and be responsible for their own actions.

Trips and Meets


We meet every Wednesday evening during term time in the Crosslands Suite, Founder's building.

Wall trips

Weekly trips with transport are to local climbing walls on Wednesday afternoons, usually leaving at 2pm outside the Student's Union. If you can't make Wednesday afternoons many members go to the local climbing walls and are happy to take along beginners and other new members.
Our local walls are Craggy Island climbing wall in Guildford, Craggy Island Bouldering in Sutton and the Reading climbing centre. We also visit the Castle in North London, the Arch in Central London and the Westway in London.

Outdoor trips

The club makes regular trips to all major climbing areas in England and Wales for trad and sport climbing. We also have a longer summer trip to a European climbing destination in the sun.
