“The summit is what drives us, but the climb itself is what matters.” -Conrad Anker
The Appalachian State Climbing Coalition is a part of Appalachian State’s Club Sports program, that is open to climbers of any and all backgrounds and abilities. We practice throughout the year and travel around the Southeast to colleges, climbing gyms, and outdoor climbing areas to compete in climbing competitions and to engage with others in our climbing community. We are a growing group with a lot of new members every year; enthusiasm for this sport, in recent years, has increased with the news of climbing as an Olympic Sport and the release of Alex Honnold’s Free Solo. We are really excited to welcome new climbers of all skill levels!
