Big Belgian balls in the Alps

The 11th of march the Luak will host a trip report by two awesome belgian climbers, Siebe Vanhee and Tim De Dobbeleer. Whom showed to have big cojones and doing some crazy stuff in the Alps. The presentation will be held by the two climbers at MSI 00.20: Erasmusplein 2, 3000 Leuven. Be there or be square!

Coldfinger weekend 1st and 2nd of March

Next up: the famous coldfinger weekend! Next Friday evening or Saturday morning we're leaving for Fontainebleau. We'll stay until Sunday night. Fingers crossed for some blue sky high friction, low gravity days!

If you want to join us, come to the LUAK on Thursday night to discuss logistics & car pool arrangements.

Saturday night we'll probably bivy on the Hippodrome field. Bring your own camping cooking supplies if you want to keep it cheap. Join the others for a restaurant (we're known to hijack the pizza place) if you're lazy ;).

Climbing Exposition Night!

This thursday LUAK will host a presentation by three different (teams of) climbers, as they come to show us what they have achieved the past year. It'll be a fun and cosy way to meet other climbers, talk about climbing, and listen to climbing stories!

More info after the break.

LUAK wintertreffen 6 to 9 February

Good news every one (as the professor of Futurama would say). Luak is going to the Montafon valley in Austria (Oostenrijk) from Wednesday evening 5 February until Sunday 9 February. LUAK and a certain former LUAK president Mr. De Winne (many thanks) have found a very nice house over there with several rooms, showers, large living/eating room and even children proof. The house is located in Tschaggun which is about 7,5hours driving from Leuven. ( More importantly, everybody who likes the mountains at winter time will have something to do:


De LUAK wenst al haar leden een gezellige kerst, en hopelijk gaan we in 2014 knalcondities hebben zodat onze goede voornemens en weddenschappen kunnen gehaald worden!

The LUAK wishes a merry christmas to all her members, and hopes for good conditions to climb throughout the year 2014 so all our bets can be climbed!

Ordering of LUAK clothes


Christmas is the time of year for all LUAKers to give themselves a present and order their new LUAK clothes. You can choose everything from a catalogue, customize it with LUAK-logo's and then ruin it with a stupid quote (just like me). Best of all, this year we have a genius new ordering system.

Three options:

1) You feel brave and want to order something special, then fill in this form: Custom order form

2) You feel rather lazy, but you still want to shine in nice LUAK climbing sweater or T-shirt. Especially for you we have made a form for the lazier LUAKer: Lazy peoples ordering form

3) You don't like computers and you certainly don’t trust the internet, because then the government will know what kind of T-shirt you like. Especially for you, there are paper catalogues @ LUAK and order all your favorite clothes by filling in a PAPER form.

The time to register

Is now!

The new website runs on a different system than the old one, which means you'll have to register for a new account. Really easy though, just click here or register on the right!

The forum is (and will stay) still the same though, so no need to make a new forum account. You don't have a forum account yet? click forum and register there too ;-) It's the nr 1 spot to waste time during the exams, during work,...

For those who want to know: we migrated to Drupal while the previous website used Joomla. We're convinced Drupal will stick since it's easy to use and has a huge community (and thus support).

To summarize:
register on the new website (also needed if you already had an account on the old website.)
register on the forum (only needed if you didn't have a forum account yet)

New website

A new year, a new jacket for the LUAK website. While all the old information and functionality was kept, there are some new features (like comments!) and we hope to integrate even more coolness in the future. If you encounter anything quirky, have questions, suggestions or anything else to announce, please let us know in the comments or mail.

Take a look around and register!
