About GSU Climbing Club
Our mission is to teach (new) climbers proper climbing etiquette in an indoor setting that is necessary to climb safely outdoors. By creating this climbing community within the Georgia State student body, it allows networking opportunities for both new and experienced climbers as well as indoor and outdoor climbing experience.
We are climbers that represent Georgia State University in climbing competitions across the Southeast through the Collegiate Climbing Series (CCS). Being a first time entry team, Georgia State placed third in the CSS Southeast Region in 2013.
As such, our club has an array of skill levels between its members: all the way from beginner to advanced. Climbing is not a competitive sport; it is all about self achievement. If you want to know more, feel free to go to the campus climbing wall and get in contact with one of the following club officers:
Climbing Club President: Michelle "Shelly" Villarimo
Vice President: Melissa Krasselt
Competition Manager: TBD
Member Managers: TBD
If you have any questions you want to have answered by phone, please call Touch The Earth (the campus outdoor equipment rental and trip planning facility): 404-413-1772
The cost to join the club for new members is $25 for their first semester, and all returning members that competed in the previous semester pay $20. This gives you access to our website, discounted climbing trips, rebated competition fees, private club climbing hours, a climbing club tee shirt, and a Stone Summit membership discount! We ask that if you are new to the club, you take a belay certification course sometime during the semester (a $2 clinic provided by Touch The Earth) so that you can belay your fellow club members during private climb hours : )
Our private climbing hours are Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 11am-1pm. Non-members are prohibited from joining these practices.
