OP Rock Climbing Club

We at the OPCC offer a safe environment to teach people how to climb and how to practice proper gear safety. Rock climbing is an incredible sport, because it challenges you physically and mentally, while simultaneously teaching you to trust and encourage others. We train on the campus’ walls and sometimes go The Boulder Cave in Pretoria for a bit of indoor climbing. Our climbing trips are always one for the books, whether it be a day trip or a weekend getaway. Hiking and camping usually go hand-in-hand with these trips, providing the perfect opportunities to explore our beautiful country and meet fellow climbers.

What can you expect from us?

  • Proper climbing etiquette and gear safety training sessions
  • Annual Beginner’s Weekend trip to Waterval Boven during April
  • Day trips to nearby crags
  • Charitable work for House Amadea
  • Fun club nights
