‘You can’t fall if you don’t climb.  But there’s no joy in living your whole life on the ground’ – Unknown

Who plays? Scottish Universities are also heavily involved in the sport, with most having a mountaineering or climbing club.

What is there? SSS offers two Climbing Championships, which tests the technical side of climbing. SSS also introduces students at Scottish Universities & Colleges to the great potential that can be found in Scotland for Climbing and Mountaineering and to educate them in making the most of that.

When does all this happen? All the events are generally on the weekends and spaced throughout the course of the academic year.
