Adult Climbing Team

The Team for Adults is a structured training and climbing program for anyone 18 and over who wants to work on becoming a stronger, more confident climber. We encourage team members to take part in local competitions as a means to set goals and push themselves to achieve but competition is not the goal--improvement and conditioning is.

Training Program

The team will meet for practices on Sunday and Wednesday evenings from 7-10pm. Each practice will include climbing drills, technique instruction, cross training and strength conditioning. We'll follow a program designed to tackle each discipline and cover all aspects of practical training for climbers. By the end of the team year, you'll be stronger, have more power, better endurance and improved technique.
