A new LUAK season about to start!

Hi all,

In a couple of weeks the new LUAK season will start. LUAK is already open every Thursday evening at the moment. At the end of September and the beginning of October we're organizing 2 info nights where you can register for the new year and meet the new board. After that, 2 initiations and the Freyr weekend will follow. Check the calendar for the exact dates and upcoming events.

Need more info? Browse around the website or contact us through mail or pass by our info booth at the student welcome!

See you at LUAK!

BBQ time!

Don't forget, this Friday the 27th at 19h is our awesome yearly BBQ (and general meeting)! We'll take care of the side dishes, veggies and grill. You bring your preferred meat, a plate and cutlery.

Don't miss out!

PS: since everybody will meet at the BBQ on Friday, the LUAK will be closed on Thursday.

Luak Zomertreffen

Good news everyone,

From Saturday 19 until Sunday 27 July, LUAK is going on zomertreffen to Switzerland in the region of the Grimsel, Furka and Süsten pass. We are all staying at the pleasant campsite Grimselblick in the cozy village of Innertkirchen. Everybody is welcome to come along, regardless of climbing grades, age or experience. Nearby, you can do multipitch climbing, sportsclimbing, bouldering, alpinism, (hiking, swimming, cycling, bookreading and even nothing if you are lazy).

If you are planning on joining us (which you should), please send an email to the famous luak.bestuur@gmail.com . If you want to join, but can't find a ride over there, come to LUAK evenings or post your ride request on the Luak forum or facebook page.

As a teaser a picture of Bruno, Tobias and Linus taken on top of the Diamand Stocke taken by Kleine Koen.

See you there!!!

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. (http://www.gaestehaus-doblinger.at) 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!
