Seattle Pacific Collegiate Climbing Club
The Seattle Pacific Collegiate Climbing Club was formed to educate students about rock climbing and alpinism, inspire students to grow physically, spiritually, and mentally, and provide resources for students who would like to take their climbing to the next level. The benefits to the SPU community are abundant. Climbing is a sport and a hobby that promotes living a healthy lifestyle, it encourages climbers to experience nature, exercise, and eat healthfully, and it is also mentally challenging. Members of the team directly reap these benefits while the SPU community at large and benefit from being around a community of people that steward their health well. With over 200 SPU students registered with climbing passes, there is plenty of opportunity for our team to grow both in numbers and in the audience we reach. Additionally, we climb at Vertical World Seattle so non-SPU students will also see our team supporting Butora in our practices and events. This is the first year our team has competed in NC3 events, and there seems to be a large group of people interested in joining the team for the 2016-2017 school year. Currently we have 15-20 members who regularly attend practice along with 5-10 members who consistently compete in NC3 events.
With multiple practices a week, you'll be sure to keep enhancing your skills and improving.
With over a dozen NC3 competitions from WWU, to OSU, to University of Idaho, there is bound to be plenty of opportunities to put your skills to the test.
When the weather's nice for a weekend, SPC3 heads out into nature to several local crags for some outdoor climbing.
