Time to Spring into Action

Our climbers have been doing a fantastic job this semester getting some new routes under their belt (or should we say harness) and we’ve seen a lot of progress in every individual who has made it out to climb!

Coming back from spring break, we hope to see those beach bums back on the ropes and climbing with as much fervor as they had before.

Getting back some info on this spring for an outdoor trip and looking forward to getting outside in this awesome weather!

Free Call Out Meeting!

        This Friday, February 9th 2018 we will have a free call out meeting for any Butler students at Hoosier Heights. We will be meeting at Hoosier Heights at 5:00 on Friday. Climbing will be completely free, but you will still need to rent equipment (harnesses, shoes, etc.).

        If you need transportation or are interested in coming with us on our first outing, please contact one of the club officers. This is our first climbing experience as a club, so  we hope to see you there!

Climbing Club Is Up and Active!

The 2018 Spring Semester is here at Butler University and Climbing Club is ready for it!

After a brief hiatus and a change of leadership, Climbing Club is active again and running smoother than ever. Working with the local climbing gym Hoosier Heights, we have been able to bargain a special deal for members of the club. With free shoe rentals on climbing dates and a full access to the gym. 

Right now, we are looking forward to our first meeting as a club and following that, our first outing to the gym to get our members on the wall. Potential members that are looking to join are welcome to come to our meeting on Thursday, Feb 1 at 5:45 in room 106B the Pharmacy Building or you can contact any of our officers who will be happy to give you information.

We are currently planning for trips to take outdoors in the spring, working with an experienced climber from the gym.

Hope we will see you around this semester!
