Sport Climbing

Sport Climbing is a discipline of  climbing that relies on permanent anchors and the clipping of bolts fixed to the rock for protection. Given that sport climbing routes possess permanent protection and anchors, climbers can focus on endurance, technique and strength rather than the placing of protection or the consequences of a fall.

Sport Climbing allows QUB Mountaineering Club members to progress through the grades of climbing in a social atmosphere and put all their training to good use
