Competition Climbing Team

The Lees-McRae Climbing Team provides team members with the opportunity to advance their climbing ability and bond as a climbing community. Team members can attend practice three times a week to improve their strength, endurance, and climbing technique. The team typically attends two climbing competitions per semester.

Whether you have been climbing your whole life or are brand new to the sport, we provide opportunities for every level of climber to improve. Team bonding opportunities include climbing movie nights, team dinners, slacklining, outdoor climbing and more!
