The Lake District

Who are we?

We are a group of walkers and climbers, primarily past and present students and staff of the Open University but also including their partners and friends. We are known as the Open University Mountaineering Society or OUMS.

We come from all areas of the UK and apart from our connection to the OU, we are linked by a shared love of walking and climbing. Consequently, we organise trips to mountainous areas throughout the year. The club is also a very sociable organisation and many of us have been members for a long time.

Are we the society you are looking for?

We welcome members of all ages and abilities. If you like being in the mountains, either as a walker or a climber, have a few weekends to spare and don’t mind roughing it occasionally, then probably the answer is ‘yes’.
