It has been another amazing year with OPC - from weekly sessions to weekend trips, trips abroad to competitions and a record number of members- we've had it all this year! Here are some of the highlights:

Foreign Trips

With one foreign trip down and two to go, we're having a great year exploring the globe!

Some of our lucky members took a trip to El Churro in Spain during the Easter break this year. It was a great trip filled with learning, climbing and craic, and everyone came back wanting more. With the trip focus mainly being to build rope skills and get some sport climbing in - it was a challenging yet very, very fun experience for the lovely people that went out (and you can see the highlights on the UL Wolves Instagram!)

Coming up are our Summer trips - El Camino and Alps!

Our Camino trips is going to be the club's first trip focused solely on hiking. It will be pretty intense with an average of 30km covered a day on the famous route - but promises great views and good company.

Our annual Alps trip to Chamonix is coming up in June and is expected to be an amazing time (as it always is). The trip will allow members to push themselves on a range of different activities like sport climbing, ice climbing, mountaineering and hiking!

Weekend Trips

This year we had four incredibly fun weekend trips - with Letterfrack making its comeback for the first time since it was rudely interrupted by a certain pandemic, a Fairhead trip and of course the classics Brandon and Glendalough!

These trips provided our members with lifelong friendships, great stories and amazing memories - from fancy dress at Bandon to camping alongside sheep at Fairhead, the only downside to these trips is that there's not more of them! 


We got in some great comp practice this year - sending teams out to both orienteering and climbing intervarsity competitions. And getting in some bigger national comps like G-Force!


We've been able to provide our members with plenty of training and gained lots of new supervisors and leaders in the club with qualifications in first aid, instructing and mountain skills being handed out by Mountaineering Ireland to many of our members.

Themed Events & Social Nights

We've had plenty of great events and social nights this semester with Women's Nights at the wall, Valenclimbs, our Hallowe'en climbing sessions and our UV Night standing out among the many fun events that we hosted this year.
