What is NijSAC?

The Nijmeegse Student Alpine Club is a student sports association with the goal of promoting mountain sports under the students of Nijmegen. As an association we combine sport climbing, bouldering, alpinism and fun activities that you may expect from a student association in Nijmegen. With monthly drink nights, game evenings and other activities you can quickly make friends with other NijSACers.

Obviously NijSAC is a sports association, which means that we organise education in sport climbing. From the ground up you will be educated to become an independent sport climber; where you learn simple climbing technique (how do I climb?) and safety techniques (belaying, material knowledge and use). After this initial education you can continue by learning lead climbing, where you learn to take up your own rope, and multipitch climbing, where you learn to climb very long routes outdoors (where you're not bound to a maximum of 40 meters, but instead can climb many hundreds in a day!). Now it’s time to have some fun with climbing, and you can use these techniques in nature.

In addition to sport climbing, there is also bouldering, which is climbing short so-called "boulders" - climbing problems no higher than 5 meters - using soft falling mats. It is also possible to do alpinism with NijSAC. For alpinism you can participate in a C-course in the alps, via NijSAC. Here you learn to navigate through alpine terrain (block terrain, glaciers, snow couloirs and more). For an impression you can watch the video below:
