The purpose of the Mines Climbing Team is to foster highly motivated climbers for the purpose of competition. This team is more of a commitment than related organizations. Mines Climbing promotes the growth of team members as climbers through rigorous training, and as individuals, creating opportunities for leadership experience and safe spaces for climbers through volunteering and teamwork. The members of Mines Climbing represent the school both in competition and by being outstanding members of the local climbing community. As a competition-based organization, Mines Climbing is committed to establishing itself as a strong force in the Collegiate Climbing Sphere.
