While we only were able to boulder on Saturday due to wet conditions on Sunday, we still had a great time at Fontainebleau this weekend! We might have set a new record with the amount of people at the pizzaria :-)
We hope you'll be as plenty on the next coldfinger weekend when the first rays of sun come in next year (around February).
The ordering of clothes is closed from now. If you haven't done so please pay a deposit of 5 euro / piece of clothing as noted in the post below. We'll notify you when the clothes arrive and you can pick them up at LUAK.
About the next events:
The next event we're organizing is the LUAK trophy this Thursday (a quiz-like evening with both questions & do-battles)! Word on the street is it'll be great. Be there at 8pm! If you don't have a group, don't worry, we'll assign you to a great team.
Tuesday the 25th of November is our third and last stop on the climbing gym tour in Louvain-la-Neuve. Be at the Spuye at 7pm to join us. We'll be back before midnight.
Thursday the 27th of November we're hosting Reel Rock! You can check out the trailer and find more info below.
From the looks of the poll below the legendary Christmas party will be on Friday the 19th of December this year. You can still vote till the end of November. Mark the date, it'll be awesome!

You will have to choose the color, size and print though.

- Get your clothes and pay the remaining part. Prices are in the catalogue, count about 10 euro s extra per print (these are estimated prices, actual price can be cheaper or more expensive).
You can order up to November 9th, we hope to have your clothes ready by the Christmas party!
This afternoon we're at the student welcome. Pass by our booth and say hi!
Tomorrow evening our second info evening will take place at 22h at LUAK headquarters. You can easily register there. To get rid of some confusion: if you're already a member on this website (test it by logging in and check if your profile is up to date) you only need to pay to a board member and receive your card. If you do not have a website account yet, registering before you pass by to become a member will speed up the process.
The membership fees this year are 15 euros for new members and 20 euros for others.
Sunday is our first day on the rocks! Pass by tomorrow evening to get more info.
In a couple of weeks the new LUAK season will start. LUAK is already open every Thursday evening at the moment. At the end of September and the beginning of October we're organizing 2 info nights where you can register for the new year and meet the new board. After that, 2 initiations and the Freyr weekend will follow. Check the calendar for the exact dates and upcoming events.
Need more info? Browse around the website or contact us through mail or pass by our info booth at the student welcome!
See you at LUAK!
Don't forget, this Friday the 27th at 19h is our awesome yearly BBQ (and general meeting)! We'll take care of the side dishes, veggies and grill. You bring your preferred meat, a plate and cutlery.
Don't miss out!
PS: since everybody will meet at the BBQ on Friday, the LUAK will be closed on Thursday.
Good news everyone,
From Saturday 19 until Sunday 27 July, LUAK is going on zomertreffen to Switzerland in the region of the Grimsel, Furka and Süsten pass.

Nearby, you can do multipitch climbing, sportsclimbing, bouldering, alpinism, (hiking, swimming, cycling, bookreading and even nothing if you are lazy).
