Welcome back to another eventful year in the Outdoor Pursuits Club (OPC)!
To keep up to date with what's going on within the club on a daily or weekly basis, or have any questions, check out our Instagram (@ulopc) or our Facebook page!
The OPC\'s main goal is to spark the interest of our activities and to continue to develop the skills needed for those activities. We offer regular training for Caving, Climbing and Orienteering and major training for Mountaineering before international trips to Scotland, the Alps, and beyond!
Our Sunday trips are usually either hiking or rock climbing and no prior experience is needed. Just bring your boots and some waterproofs and you will be ready to go. For the rock climbing trips we supply all the gear including rock shoes, helmets and harnesses. On these Sunday trips you get a great opportunity to learn map skills or belaying and climbing techniques. While the dreaded Covid-19 has put a bit of a spanner in the works, we're working hard to see that we can run trips safely.
OPC weekend trips are fairly infamous. From the old monastery of Letterfrack, Connemara to the Youth Hostel in the foothills of the Wicklow Mountains in Glendalough these weekend trips are not to be missed. They have gained legendary status due to the hikes, craic and general debauchery. You would have to go to find out. All events and trips will be Covid-compliant; unfortunately this might make weekend trips less common but whatever you get involved in, we can guarantee a cracking time!
The NEW OPC Climbing Wall is located next to the UL Sports Arena and is one of UL’s great sports facilities. We're so excited to get you all in to try out the new state of the art facility.
Be sure to look out for our trips sign-ups, information will be sent out in the weekly emails or you can check out our Trips and Events Page or Facebook.
See you in the outdoors!
