Climbing Club

Organization

We are a community of climbers that trains together with intent to grow better and stronger in our sport as we prepare for competition. We have a competitive team in addition to our Climbing family!

Activities

The Climbing Team has attended many competitions both locally and out of state in past years, and we plan to compete in several competitions this academic year. The Climbing Team hosts several events throughout each semester, including some closed team events and some climbing wall events open to all. Closed team events include team practices, lead climb nights, and competitions. Climbing events open to all include climbing interest nights, girls only nights, climbers’ yoga classes, and trips to climbing gyms or outdoors.
