Club Sport: Climbing Team

For a school of just over 2000 students, Colorado College has one of the strongest and most active climbing communities in the U.S. Outside magazine has called CC “a veritable feeder school for professional climbing.” Our climbing club started in the 1940s and after decades of notable first ascents and cultivation of the world’s best climbers, we're looking to show our prowess on the competition scene. Given CC's history, it's pretty shocking that we haven't had a competitive climbing team up until now. This year more than 25 students have committed to train together and compete across the state and country.

The climbing team is entirely self funded, so we need your help to register for and travel to competitions! Though we are new on the scene, with your contribution we will take the circuit with force!

          

There are over 10 schools in Colorado that participate in USA Climbing's Collegiate Climbing Series, and there are several local competitions throughout Colorado leading up to the Regional Championships in Fort Collins in March. Regionals is the qualifying event for the National Championships, which took place in San Diego last April. Students can choose to compete in bouldering, speed, and sport climbing, with each discipline available at most competitions.

The students on the CC climbing team are a dedicated bunch with some who've competed in youth competitions for years and some who've only been climbing for a few months. Block 2 consisted mostly of getting everyone signed up and completing some strength testing, but Block 3 kicks off official team practices and personalized training plans.

Help our first year on the circuit be a success! We are relying on your support to get to competitions, hold practices, and represent CC on a national stage. Every little bit helps, and your contribution is greatly appreciated!
