Rock Climbing Sport Club

Our purpose is to create a team that helps students take their rock climbing skills to the next level and provide them with competition experience. The mission of the Rock Climbing Sport Club is to teach others how to train properly, push team members to improve their climbing ability, and represent OSU-Cascades at rock climbing competitions. Our team has been competing in the Northwest Collegiate Climbing Circuit (NC3). These competitions occur during winter and spring, and our pre-season takes place during fall.
