UNB Rock & Ice is a completely volunteer, non-profit group of climbers interested in advancing all forms of climbing in NB. Above all else, UNB Rock & Ice is committed to cooperative and sustainable development of New Brunswick's climbing community and to educate those new to the sport.
Our club is made up of and is open to both UNB students and members of the local community. Although the club's first priority is running the indoor climbing facility at UNB, we also organize a variety of events and programs. A select few include:
The club's history goes back to the 1970's and a small group of dedicated students pioneering the sport in NB. Today, we are one of the largest organizations on UNB campus with well over one hundred members and easily thousands of users. We are completely self-sufficient and we generate funding through hosting birthdays, private events, and our programs. Those funds are used to maintain and expand our climbing gym and purchase new safety equipment.
We are built by climbers, for climbers
UNB Rock & Ice is lead by a five-person executive which is elected each year in April. Any of our volunteers are eligible to run for a position. In addition, we have a three-person advisory board of directors who are appointed to two year terms by the president. This board provides year-to-year continuity for the club. Board members are experienced climbers who have a strong connection to the club.
