The academic year is almost over. Most students are studying hard while others enjoy the improving weather. But don't worry, as you can see on the calendar we are planning our annual luak-BBQ to celebrate the end of the exams and the beginning of the holidays. This will take place at the luak on Saturday evening the 29'th of June.
Afterwards, most people will leave on holiday so the luak will close for at least a month. Make sure you borrow all the climbing equipment you need for the summer months.
Also keep in mind LUAK is organizing it's alpine summer meeting in Ailefroide (Ecrins, France). Yes indeed, back to the roots where it all started. A lot of people will be there between 13/7 and 21/7. Everybody is free to join and climb whatever he wants. We don't organize any activities but there should be plenty to do for every level and type of climbing (bouldering, sport, trad, multipitch, alpinism).
If you are a new member or aspire to become one, feel free to pass by at one of our weekly club meetings or send an email to

Covergirl of the month: Linus (left) on the 6'th pitch of the beautiful route 'Mummery' while overtaking a German climber on 'Fair Hands Line'. 2 must-do routes if you are climbing around the Grimsel pass (Handegg, Suisse) from some of the most prolific route openers from Switzerland, Von Kanel and the Remy brothers.
