Who is WSAC Ibex?
Let us introduce ourselves! We are WSAC Ibex, the climbing association of Wageningen. We are an active outdoor sports association with lots of interesting people and many different activities. No time? Fine! Once you are a member, presence is never obligatory. You only come when and because you want to. Ibex is a fun, internationally oriented association with few obligations and many opportunities.
We provide indoor and outdoor climbing courses and exams (following the NKBV standards), we give a technique and tactics training (the TTT), we are associated with the NSAC, which provides alpine courses for students, and if you want to become an instructor yourself, we can also help you with that! If that is all a bit much for now, we also organise many non-climbing related activities such as barbeques, movie nights, alpine cafés (a kind of TED talks about alpinism adventures) and things like the Christmas dinner.
Thursday evening is the regular climbing day in Arnhem for most of our members and often there will also be members going to other climbing/boulder halls on other days. We announce on the website when we go climbing and if we have a car or not, so that others can join if they want to (this part of the website is only available for members). In the weekends, if the weather is nice and there are instructors available, we also go climbing in the rocks in Belgium and Germany and bouldering in France. Outdoor courses will also often take place on those weekend trips.
If you are interested in becoming a member, you can find more information about that on our 'membership' page (under the tab 'association'). We have two subscription moments in the year: in August/September and in January/February (at the start of the academic year and at the start of the second half). In those periods, we organise an introduction to give you the opportunity to meet other (new) members and in September we also offer an introduction course to get your IT certificate. This is a basic proof that you can climb and belay safely, which you need to become a member of Ibex. If you have one already, you can skip the course, but we strongly recommend joining the introduction to get a nice start and get to know the association!
