DO YOU NEED EXPERIENCE TO ATTEND A DOS TRIP?
We try our best to make trips as accessible as possible. That being said, we also try to cater to more intermediate and expert students as well. As we offer a wide range of trip difficulties, get in contact with a member of the executive or the trip leader themselves to see if the trip is a good fit for you.
