"We strive to build and maintain a community of those committed to improving themselves as climbers and as individuals"
The CU Climbing Team is the University of Colorado Boulder's collegiate climbing team. Each season, we compete in the USA Climbing Collegiate Climbing Series (CCS) at the local, regional, and national level. At the CCS National Championships, our climbers compete in bouldering, sport climbing, and speed climbing against other collegiate teams from across the country, ranking as high as 2nd in the nation out of a field of more than one hundred teams.
During the school year, we hold structured practices at our host gym, G1 Climbing + Fitness in Broomfield, Colorado. With the combined expertise of our members, many of whom are experienced competitors, youth coaches, and routesetters, we are able to provide training and technique development for climbers of all levels in order to reach both our competition and outdoor goals. Practices allow our climbers to come together as a team to push themselves to improve and form a tightly-knit community of highly supportive and stoked individuals.
In addition to competitive climbing, our team members can be found climbing outdoors year round at local crags such as Boulder Canyon, Rocky Mountain National Park, Rifle, the Flatirons, Clear Creek Canyon, Lincoln Lake, Eldorado Canyon, and many more. Our main focuses are typically on bouldering and sport climbing although a few of us are also psyched to plug some gear on both single-pitch and multi-pitch trad routes. During school breaks, we are lucky to be within a few hours of several world-class climbing locations such as Moab, Indian Creek, Joes Valley, Bishop, Red Rocks, Roy, Wild Iris, and others.
We're stoked to be able to maintain one of the strongest and most enthusiastic climbing communities in the Rocky Mountains! We're very excited to see what the future holds for our team and we can't wait to see what new generations of the CU Climbing Team can accomplish.
Please feel free to contact the team or any of our student leaders if you have any questions!
