What We Do

We hold practices at Planet Rock, doing workouts on and off the wall. We compete through USAC in local, regional, and national competitions. The Michigan Climbing team is a club sport sponsored by the Department of Recreational Sports at the University of Michigan.

Our Mission

The University of Michigan Climbing Team is committed to:
  1. Fostering the development of a nationally competitive climbing team by supporting new and experienced athletes alike.
  2. Supporting the growth of climbing as a sport by maintaining an environment of dedication, teamwork, encouragement, and inclusivity


Members are any undergraduate or graduate student who intends on competing in USA Climbing sanctioned competitions in the coming school year, commits to climbing and training at least once a week during the competition season, is enrolled at the University of Michigan, has paid the team dues ($70 per year), and has proof of health insurance.
