Welcome to the Harvard Mountaineering Club

We invite you to come to our meetings every Thursday night at 8pm in Claverly Hall during term time. This is the best time to plan for weekend climbs, here about our bigger trips, get involved with the club, and check out our resources (lots of gear and an amazing library).

New members should check out the various sections of the website to find out more about the club and what it can do for you. Club activities will generally be announced over the mountain-list.

Climbing Walls

The Lowell Climbing Wall is open daily during the semester from 5PM-11PM. The wall is located in the basement of A entryway in Lowell House. Wall Staff also post their hours on the Wall Calendar.

We regret to inform that we no longer hold regular hours for the Claverly climbing walls.

The Summer Grant

Three Thousand Dollars were awarded to a proposal to climb in the Wind River range of Wyoming for two weeks last summer. We climbed in the Deep Lake Region from August 8th to the 15th and in the Cirque of the Towers from August 16th to the 23rd. We will begin accepting applications for next year's summer grant in March. Dream up something big!

Harvard Mountaineering, The Journal

The issue 26 (2007) was recently mailed out to life members. We're hoping to stay in better contact so be looking for updates and newsletters in the mail. Issue 27 (2009) of Harvard Mountaineering is currently being edited and compiled. It should be ready sometime this year!

New Paypal Account

We just set up a paypal account to make donations easier. We're looking to revamp our Mountaineering gear this year with new boots, new crampons, and new ice tools. All contributions are greatly appreciated.
