Have you seen those folks in the RCC scaling the wall or dropping from the ceiling near the exercise bikes? You probably caught members of the Climbers Coalition in action! Since 2003, the group has shared their passion for climbing with countless students who never knew how fun climbing could be. But be wary- it’s a highly addictive way to exercise and make new friends! There’s a chance you’ll be hooked for life… For instance, Pete Clark, a founding signer of the group, is now currently the President of the Western Mass Climbers Coalition, a regional climbing advocacy organization.
If you want to give climbing a try, the Hampshire Climbers (the group’s new name) officially meets 3 days a week in the RCC.
Tuesday and Thursday from 6PM to 8PM – -> Open to All Students
Wednesday from 6PM to 8PM –> Open ONLY to Self-Identifying Women and Non-Binary Students
The Bouldering Cave is open whenever the RCC is!
PLUS: All the equipment you need is provided by the group (just a pair of shoes and a harness).
