Type: Extreme sports
Holding onto small edges, balancing on your feet, pumped forearms: that’s climbing! You’ll find nice routes and courses on your level. Come and try out climbing on our 14 meter high wall!
14 hours of racing: mountainbiking, navigating, canoeing. “The day before the event all four of us wondered what the hell we got ourselves into, but it is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done”. Team up and see for yourself during ARA 2019!
The USC climbing hall is 14m high, has 18 ropes and routes between 3 and 7b. You can choose between toprope or lead.
Always check out the timetable for the climbing hours outside the course hours. You find the hall availability there.
1. The wall is accessible if you’re in the possession of an NKBV klimvaardigheidsbewijs, if you get listed on the USC climbing permission list or when you are an ASAC member.
2. We cannot scan member passes of other climbing halls. Did you obtain your K2 certificate? Send us a proof (with name and date) to email@example.com!
3. If you are an experienced climber, you can get access if you demonstrate your belaying and climbing skills to one of our USC climbing instructors. Please mail firstname.lastname@example.org for an appointment and describe your experience and availability. You have to bring a climbing partner.
This is included in the course price. Bring an elastic if you have long hair.
Since 2010 you find the Amsterdamse Studenten Alpen Club in the USC climbing hall. There are several club nights. Yearly ASAC organises their Open Club Championships in Universum. As an ASAC member you get a discount on onetime entries and memberships at the USC. ASAC regularly organises weekend trips abroad. Check asac.nl
