Climbing – 2019 Spring Season

Butler’s Climbing Club is all set to go this spring! We have so far registered 26 climbers and counting for the Spring Semester and are looking to begin climbing by early next week.

Our competition meeting will be held today at 5 PM in PH106A to help climbers learn more about what it will take to compete and what they can do to train and prepare for North Carolina.

We have strong climbers that we can see moving onto Regional competitions in Chicago this spring and can’t wait to see the success of the club!


Finals and Climbing

Hey there, Climbers!

We look forward to seeing lots of new potential climbers for next semester at Hoosier Heights.

With our hopes set on a trip to compete in North Carolina and an outdoor trip in the spring, what more could you want out of a simple registration?

Hope you had a wonderful break and a great end to the semester!

– Peter, Climbing Club President


Upcoming Competition

Although many climbers will be headed home for Thanksgiving Break, November 13th is the date of Hoosier Height’s “Melee in the Midwest” competition. They will be hosting it on Saturday after classes have finished. With climbers from all over the U.S., there are still climbers from right here in Indianapolis that will be able to represent Butler and compete in this awesome opportunity.


Monthly Update

Our climbers have been having an amazing time getting started this semester!

Members have been improving in their skills in climbing ability and we’ve seen a lot of improvement in just such a short time. Some of our newest members have already progressed from beginning 5.7 or VB climbing to some V3 and 5.10a levels! It’s been an absolute joy to see people’s confidence grow as they see their own boundaries being pushed each week.

Next semester you are welcome to join us, feel free to contact us at the emails below.

New 2018 Season

Are you as excited as we are to get climbing this year? With new executive officers, new ideas and direction, the 2018 climbing season is filled with potential. The only thing missing is YOU!


Attend SGA’s block party and look for our booth to sign up for more information about what is to come this year. Better get climbing!


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!
