MaasSAC – who we are

Maastrichtse Studenten Alpen Club, or MaasSAC for short, is the student climbing association of Maastricht. With currently around 150 members we are a group of outdoor enthusiasts, who like to climb, hike and enjoy the student life. Whether you like alpinism, bouldering or rockclimbing, MaasSAC is the place to be! On Tuesdays we can be found in the bouldergym; on Thursdays in the climbing gym; on the weekends somewhere in Belgium outdoors; and on the holidays somewhere in the Alps. In short, MaasSAC is the place to be!

Are you completely new to climbing? Worry not! After joining you will get a basic climbing course to teach you how to climb and belay safely. From that moment you will be an independent climber and ready to climb as much as you’d like! There is even a possibility to become a climbing instructor yourself.

Apart from climbing we organize social events, like board game evenings, lasertag or just going for some drinks after climbing. So, besides the fact that MaasSAC will get you super fit, you will also get the most out of your student life here in Maastricht!

Hello (prospective) climbers,

MaasSAC is happy to invite you to our introduction bouldering weekends that will take place in Izier, Belgium this year! This is an amazing opportunity for old and (possible) new members to meet and enjoy a fun weekend of bouldering! Bouldering experience is not required, do not fret, you will be able to learn along the way. 

The plan is to meet up on Saturday morning and travel to Izier to spend Saturday and Sunday afternoon bouldering in the area together. The evening will be a chance to get to know each other and learn more about the association. This evening will be spent at a nearby campsite. We will arrive back in Maastricht Sunday evening. 

The sign-up deadline is the 14th of September for the 18-19th weekend and the the 20th for the 25-26th weekend. Spots for these trips are limited, therefore first come, first served. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee that everyone gets a spot, depending on the amount of cars we have at hand. We will try our best to make it work, but it’s best to sign up early to make sure you get a spot. As it becomes clear that there are spots available in cars, we will send you confirmations for your spot (at which point you need make the payment).

If you have any questions, contact us via or send a message to our facebook page.

We are looking forward to meet and climb with all of you, 

MaasSAC Board of 2021-2022
