The Stanford Climbing team was founded in 2012 by undergraduates interested in building a strong climbing community. Over the last three years, our team has 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. In fact, the Stanford Climbing Team is ranked the top team in the nation, having earned the gold medal in all three individual sport, speed and bouldering disciplines, as well as the all-around, at the 2018 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 and competing for the team. Try-outs are held at the start of fall quarter and any interested student, regardless of skill level, is encouraged to stop by!
