Welcome to the NUMC homepage. Here you can find details about our Pulse climbing nights, gear hire, memberships, and communications. We look forward to taking you on epic adventures!


The Newcastle University Mountaineering Club is a network of adventure-minded people who love nature, the outdoors, and adventure sports! NUMC facilitates this passion, providing climbing, caving, bushwalking and camping trips, as well as seasonal canyoning trips and social BBQ nights. We also provide a weekly climbing night for our members, which will this year take place at Pulse Climbing Gym in Adamstown on Monday nights, and provide a networking opportunity with other passionate mountaineers. 

Pulse Climbing Nights

Each Monday at Pulse Adamstown we run climbing sessions between 5:30-7:30 & 7:30 – 9:30. Tickets are free through the events page and gives you access to the best bouldering and top roping walls in Newy. Log in at 8pm each Thursday to grab your ticket. There are 30 tickets available for each session but get in fast, they sell out quickly!
If you’re new to the club and are looking for a climbing partner or someone to show you the ropes, hit up our secretary Kenz Bailey or our VP Matt Moss. You can find us on messenger or text us through the club Instagam.


Our Trips

Our climbing trips range from beginner to advanced with a range of top roping, bouldering, lead climbing and trad climbing. Come along to our climbing trips to learn tips and tricks from our experienced climbers and experience the joy of overcoming vertical challenges!

Love the sound of abseiling down a waterfall or cliff jumping, all whilst taking in the glorious view of Australian Canyons?
Each year we run a range of canyoning trips, wet or dry & beginner to advanced, from October - April. 
Our wonderful trip leaders run abseiling upskilling sessions and will teach you what you need to know on our beginner canyoning trips!

Like to earn your way to a good view?
Each semester we run a range of hiking trips from beginner to advanced and single to multi-day hikes.
Many of our hikes take place in the Blue Mountains, Great North Walk or Port Stephens. 

Love obstacles or indoor climbing?
Check out our epic caving trips ranging from beginner to intermediate experience.
In the caves, explorers navigate their way through cave systems and manoeuvre and climb their way through challenges and squeezes. 
Across the caves, you will find fossils, crystal chambers and incredible rock structures. 

Social Events
