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.
The ISUMCC meets every Monday at 8:00pm, usually in room 0003 of Physics Hall (but watch the homepage and email list for updates each week). A club business meeting is usually followed by an educational presentation. Non-club members are welcome!
Fees are $25/semester (fall or spring+summer) or $45 for the year. Trip fees are collected for all trips to cover transportation and camping fees. Proceeds go toward equipment purchases and overhead.
