This study aims to determine the response to the decrease in the level of depression in the COVID-19 pandemic after climbing a mountain. This type of research uses a pre-experimental method using a one-group pretest-posttest design by climbing Mount Buthak on the Panderman route with an altitude of 2868 MDPL. The research subjects used were climbers of Mount Buthak who experienced depression symptoms of the COVID-19 pandemic aged 17-30 years as many as 30 climbers, consisting of 17 men and 13 women. Parameters to measure the level of depression using the Beck Depression Inventory II (BDI II) test. The climb is carried out for 2-3 days to the top of Mount Buthak at an altitude of 2868 MDPL.

The results of the t-test pretest and posttest obtained a t-value of 32,357 with a significant of 0.000 less than 0.05. The conclusion of this study is that there is a decrease in depression in the COVID-19 pandemic after doing mountain climbing.
