Mountaineering and Climbing Club Header
The Iowa State University Mountaineering and Climbing Club is a student-run, non-profit organization designed to provide the ISU community with an affordable means to learn about and experience the outdoors, through class room and hands-on instruction in backpacking, rock climbing, ice climbing, and mountaineering. It is our goal to provide a safe learning environment for all those interested in learning these skills, and to help provide the equipment necessary.

Our meetings for Fall 2020 are being held in a hybrid format, Mondays at 8:00 pm.

The online meeting is via Webex at .

If you would like to attend in person (following ISU mask and social distancing rules), we meet in Beyer 1310 (unless you see exceptions listed here). Non-students can get in without having to pay Rec fees by telling them at the desk that you're going to the club meeting for the Mountaineering & Climbing Club.

Beginners are always welcome!

Drivers Needed

We always need more drivers. Must be 18 years old, and certification is quick and easy to complete.

Van Training

If you're at least 20 years old and don't have a terrible driving record, take the large passenger van training class and test. The test is free, and we always need more drivers for trips.
