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 2021 will be Mondays at 8:00pm*.   They will be hybrid meetings.  If you can, meet with us in person in SIC 3204 (Student Innovation Center).  Otherwise, you can join us via Webex at .

* Meetings are held when classes are held that day.  We will not meet on university holidays or during Thanksgiving break.  We will also not meet during prep week or finals week.

Beginners are always welcome!  Just come to any of our meetings; no experience necessary!

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.
