About the Team:
The Whitman College Climbing Team is an officially sanctioned club sports team. We are committed to improving the technical and physical climbing abilities of our athletes. During our training season in the fall semester we divide into three training teams (the beginning/intermediate team, the advanced team, and the open team). Climbers are placed with the team that best fits their strength and climbing abilities. This allows our climbers to train with a group that is at their level. During our competitive season the training teams merge. We practice during the week and travel to competitions over the weekends. We compete in the Northwest Collegiate Climbing Circuit (NC3) and the USA Climbing Collegiate Climbing Series (CCS). Many members of our team start out their climbing careers with the climbing team. Many members of our team choose not to compete. The climbing team is a very supportive environment that fosters individuals of all climbing backgrounds and abilities to achieve their best.
