Alpine Base Camp

This summer there will be another TSAC ABK! This is a week where the TSAC is on a campsite in the alps and you can do all kinds of epic things yourself. TSAC will only take care of the camping, so you will have to bring your own stuff, and there will be no instruction. From the TSAC there is a 350 euro budget for the ABK, which will be used to pay (part of) your accommodation costs.

As you have already read in the newsletter, the location this year is Argentière, France, near the legendary Chamonix. For the period of 23 July to 1 August we have reserved places on the Camping des Montets

If you plan to come, please register via the Google Form. The dates you fill in are not binding, but  give us an indication of how many people will be present.

We have reserved 25 places on the campsite. Therefore we ask you to fill in the form before Monday 14 June. If it turns out that more people want to go to the ABK, we will do our best to reserve extra places.

It is still uncertain what the situation around Corona will be at the time of the ABK. As you can understand, the ABK will not take place in case of an orange or red travel advice.


Hope to see you in the Alps!


Marije, Marten and Stijn

Truus hype!!

As of tomorrow (19-05), thanks to the relaxation of the coronation measures, we can finally climb inside again! This means that every Tuesday and Thursday there will be ‘zaalavonden’ again from 21.00-23.00 in SC3. There is a maximum of 16 people. Besides that, the technique training will be indoors again with a maximum of 8 people at the same time. Registration is still done via the spreadsheet. The times of the training sessions have been changed, so be sure to check them!

When climbing, you need to keep 1,5m distance at all times and you'll be climbing in the same duo the whole evening (for both zaalavond and training). A facemask should also be worn when not hanging on the wall. Before climbing, check the corona page and the protocol that is there and in your mail.

See you soon at a training, indoor evening or at the outside wall!
