06/12/2018 James Pearson in Leuven

SAVE THE DATE! LUAK and klimclub Hungaria organise a lecture with the one and only James Pearson the 6th of December!!

James Pearson. Known for his bold trad ascents, hard sport climbs and one of the first people to "flash" a V13 (8B). Growing up in the Peak District (UK) James quickly made a name for himself, now he is travelling and climbing all over the world together with Caroline Ciavaldini. In short, he's an allround crusher!

More info can be found on their site: and Once Upon A Climb

Summer meet @ La Berarde!!!

After our bbq on Friday, the summer has finally started. Get ready for our summer meet in La Bérarde!!

La Berarde is a small village in the Alps, in the mountain massif of the Ecrins. There are a lot of climbing routes for everyone: easy and harder multipitches, alpine routes and sportclimbing.

Here is some practical stuff:


The 29th of June 6PM is the LUAK BBQ

The end of the academic year calls for a party! Before we all head to the mountains, let's have our annual BBQ. This is also the general meeting for LUAK, we say goodbye to the old board and welcome the new board. Not only that, the most important decision of the year will be made: where will our summer meet be?
Be there, bring some meat/veggies.
until then!

LUAK Trophy

Parents forgot your grades, anxiously awaiting the real test. Athletes flee the Olympics. You've got it right! Tomorrow night it's LUAK Trophy!

Everyone can participate in our international old/newschool challenge, yet, in the end the truest of climbers win the holy climbing grail! Tomorrow the 22nd at 8h30PM at LUAK!

introduction evenings

Soon the academic year takes off again. LUAK will dedicate the first three LUAK evenings to introduction. These nights will be the ideal moment to get acquainted with our students club. Of course all existing members are also welcome and memberships can be renewed.

You find more info on the poster (left) and on Facebook (links below). Besides you can pre-register on our website and already access some extra pages. The evenings are followed by introduction rock days. We might see you soon!
