The Stanford Climbing team was founded in 2012 by undergraduates interested in building a strong climbing community. It has since grown from a handful of dedicated members to over 40 competitive climbers and is now recognized as an official Stanford Club sport.

In the Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters, the team competes in local, regional, and national competitions that are part of the USA Collegiate Climbing Series. The Stanford Climbing Team is currently ranked the top team in the nation, having earned the gold medal in both the sport and bouldering disciplines, as well as in the all-around at the 2019 Collegiate National Championships! Outside of competitions, the climbing team also plans weekend and holiday trips to climb outdoors in locations such as Yosemite, Bishop, and Red Rocks.

The Stanford Climbing Team is open to both undergraduate and graduate students committed to attending weekly practices throughout the school year. COVID-19 Update: The Stanford Climbing Team will not be meeting for in-person practices or competitions until social distancing measures are no longer necessary for public health and safety. Instead, we will be hosting a variety of virtual events to replace our usual in-person activities.

For the 2020-2021 academic year, there will be no tryouts, and the climbing team will be open to all members of the Stanford community. For more information, contact team co-presidents Jenna Wang (jrmwang@stanford.edu) and Kara Herson (kherson@stanford.edu).
