The new academic year is closing in and with that also the start of a new luak year. This means of course new initiations, info evenings, lots of climbing and lots of fun. however... you have probably heard by now that there is some new kind of virus in town that hinders the normal course of events :( That's why, this year, you will have to sign up for our info evenings.
for the first one on tuesday 29/09 (20h) use this link:
The borders of Europe will officially reopen on 15th of june. This means that we can make plans for a summer meet. In order to speed up the process, we chose that Ailefroide will be the destination for this year. Ailefroide lies in a beautiful valley in the ecrins and offers all you could want. (From a 4000m alpine climb to multipitches of 500m (both on walking distance in the valley as higher up in the mountains). But also bouldering and singlepitch climbing is possible for those who want to take a chill day or don't have experience in the longer stuff.
