Welcome to the Climbing Club at UCI!
We are a passionate and diverse group of climbers who share a love for athletics, community and the great outdoors.
If we could, we would climb outside everyday. Our goal as a club is to give our members the skills and experience to be confident and independent when climbing outdoors.
We typically have one day trip and one 3 day overnight trip a quarter.
Carpools and camping (if required) will be arranged and the team has gear to lend out for trips.
We expect our members to take care of their physical needs on trips, this includes bringing your own food, warm layers, sleeping equipment etc... Please always reach out if you want advice, have questions or need gear.
Team Practice & Coaching:
Attendance at practice is completely optional! We hold practices at two locations, one on campus (ARC Rockwall) and one off-campus (Sender One, suggested). Practices are tailored toward your individual needs. Check below for practice times
Climbing specific educational programs:
Our goal is to educate our members and give them the knowledge to be able to go enjoy the outdoors safely. We will host hands-on classroom and virtual workshops to go over Leave-No-Trace, outdoor climbing etiquette, anchor building, and risk assessment in the outdoor environment.
USA Climbing Collegiate Climbing Series Competitions:
We participate in USA Climbing events with other local colleges. Team members are encouraged to compete regardless of their climbing experience. Local competitions take place all over the SoCal region. By competing in at least one of these, you'll be eligible to compete in Divisionals, which take place at the end of the winter quarter. If you place at Divisionals you have the opportunity to go to Nationals, the club will do its best to get you there . If you are interested in competing or have more questions, please reach out to Carlie.
Team cohesiveness is important to us, so our social events are hosted every 1-2 months. Permanent friendships have been made at these events so don't miss out! Afraid you'll miss these social events? Don't worry about it, there will be another one. Check out our discord for news and events here
