Treasurer: Sarah Louise, 3rd year Geography Ba. From NE London.
After trying out rock climbing with the club in freshers week 2010, I caught the bug and haven't stopped climbing since. The following year I had the privilege of becoming club treasurer and will be continuing this role into 2012-13. Besides climbing and mountaineering I enjoy swimming, ballet, running, baking, travelling to new places and meeting new people. My highlights this year have got to be bouldering in Fontainebleau for the first time and actually learning how to swim (with help and advice from many good friends). Really looking forward to a fantastic year ahead!
Meet Sec: Hana White, 2nd Year Anthropology BA. From west Yorkshire.
Hiya, I'm Hana, I mistrust people who make fruit salads and (obviously) love climbing. I had one of the most amazing times of my life on the last club trip to El Chorro, and this year will be helping to organise other club trips which I hope you'll enjoy just as much! I'm a second year Anthropology student and other climbers only take the piss out of it because deep down they're aware that it's actually completely the best ever subject and they feel a deep sense of regret for not picking it. When I'm not climbing you can usually find me making a fool out of myself (also sometimes you can find me doing this whilst climbing)
Communications Sec: Yahia Al-Jebari, 3rd year Biochemical Engineering MEng. From Sweden, Netherlands, Iraq, etc?
As the Comm. Sec my job is, well I guess, to talk to people and that suits me just fine! I started climbing during my first year at UCL partly to overcome my fear of heights. It has not worked. I do love the sport, but it's the people in the society that keep me coming back.
Otherwise, I'm quite an odd (talk to me and you'll see) and nerdy (I made this website as a summer project) person. If you have any questions about the club I'm the person to ask.
President: Leo Westland, 3rd year Physics MSci. From Brighton.
Hi, I’m a 3rd year physics student at UCL and lucky enough to the president of UCLUMC this year. I have been climbing regularly for 2 and a bit years now, I have the strange ability of being shit at indoor but fairly accomplished when it comes to outdoor sport climbing. I was born in Bristol but grew up close to Brighton on the South coast. If I’m not climbing or busy with Uni work I will probably be cycling, snowboarding or drinking too much on a Wednesday evening. I’m look forward to seeing lots of new faces this year at UCLUMC.
Marketing Sec: Rosie Brigham, 3rd year History of Art. From Cornwall.
I was an utter newbie to climbing last year but was utterly enamoured from day one. It's such an awesome sport with the perfect balance of adrenaline thrills and relaxed chatting (at least when I do it...). Proper Cornish lass and so happiest outside on a beach or clifftop.
When in London however I am usually found in the National Gallery as I am a huge History of Art geek. I also love food, free cocktails, Olympics, Swimming, cake mix, Caspar David Freidrich and Ben Howard. I hate Kant.
Social sec: Nathan Fitchen, 2nd Year Earth Science MSci. From Hippiestan
I joined UCLUMC last year when I started university. It has been a brilliant year and now its my turn to make the socials just that little bit better! I tried climbing for the first time last year and soon jumped on the UCLUMC band wagon. It is the only society I felt at home in. So this year I get the opportunity to be social sec for the society and hope to turn you all into party animals by the end of the year! Other than climbing, I like to go on crazy adventures (I cycled to Italy over summer), Surfing, Cycling, Hiking, Couchsurfing and going to as many festivals as possible. I study Earth science and do have a genuine interest in geology and palaeontology.
Social sec: Emily Fisher, 3rd year Human Science Ba. From Preston.
Hello! I'm Emily, I'm a third year Human Scientist and I will be your social secretary this year! I got into rock climbing at the end of my first year, but have always loved mountaineering. I'm from the north west of England, so I enjoy plenty of trips to the Lake District. When I'm not climbing I also enjoy netball and cycling. I'm really looking forward to taking on the role of social sec, and between us I'm sure that Nathen and I can fulfil all of you social needs and make sure you have a brilliant time with UCLUMC!
Gear sec: Adrienn Gyori, 1st Year Medicine. From Hungary.
This is my second year as gear sec of UCLUMC. I inventory and supervise the condition of club gear. If you need to, you’re welcome to borrow gear from the club during Freshers’ sessions and club trips. (However, if on occasion you catch me at the Castle in a somewhat frustrated mood, then I’m probably hunting down people who have not returned club gear.) Before climbing trips you may receive a few emails from me usually titled GEARGEARGEAR. What I do at UCL: I graduated Physiology and decided to stick around for a bit longer, so I’m continuing with Medicine. What else I do (apart from UCL and UCLUMC): Erm… this is where I’m supposed to ramble on about how I’m an invaluable member of society. Lol. Suffice to say, I enjoy a number of other sports and I’m a volunteer first-aider.
Meet sec: Ben Bennet, 3rd year Medicine. From Devon.
I'm Ben, the Meets Secretary for the mountain trips - I'm a keen Alpinist with 7 weeks experience over the last few years and I'm psyched to get the real mountaineering side off the ground with some autumn hikes and summer trips. There are lots of projects in the planning stage: last year we ran a successful trip to Scotland for the first time in the recorded history in the club and will hopefully take another group for this year - keep your eyes open for an Easter trip to the Atlas mountains!
Team captain: Alex Chan 3rd Year Physics BSci. From China.
My role within the club is team captain, with it being my responsibility to be psyched about climbing and hard sendage, and also select, organize and train team members for events such as LUBE and BUCS.
Having only picked up the sport in my first year here at UCL my climbing highlights since then have been the two big club trips to mallorca and el chorro, and of course meeting the great bunch of like minded people within the club.Other interests of mine include triathlon, photography and traveling seeing amazing parts of the world.
