As the world is changing around us, Club Climbing has also made some changes! A new executive board, new home gym and new competition schedule have us busy for the 2021-2022 school year.
In early 2021, we welcomed new members to the exec team while others moved within the board. We are excited at the chance to collaborate and hear new ideas.
Over the summer, a new bouldering gym opened downtown Indianapolis! North Mass Boulder has become the new home gym for Butler Club Climbing and we couldn’t be happier. This gym allows us to boulder, train on the many training walls, workout (weights, running, etc.), and toil away on homework while enjoying a snack at the Top Out Cafe on the second level of the building. With routes constantly changing, we are able to try new things and build our strength and techniques.
While the competition schedule last year was a bit bare because of the pandemic, this year is looking promising. Competitions to qualify for regionals are popping up in our region and we are looking forward to getting back into the competitive spirit. Competitions in Ohio and here in Indianapolis give club members the chance to qualify for regionals and (hopefully) divisional championships (bouldering will be held at North Mass Boulder in February).
The end of 2021 and beginning of 2022 is looking promising for the club and we’re excited at the chance to compete again and sharpen our skills at our new home gym.
