BearClimb 2016

Join us for the 13th annual BearClimb held at Baylor University's McLane Student Life Center (SLC) on Saturday, February 27th! Our 3 year-old rock wall is one of the tallest free-standing climbing walls in Texas with natural features and a jamming crack.

BearClimb is open to all interested climbers. Whether you are a regular climber, a beginner or just interested in learning, you can participate, have fun and win great prizes. There are categories for youth, beginner, intermediate and advanced climbers. Door prizes are available to all. Climbers that sign up by the early registration deadline are guaranteed a competition shirt, grab bag, and snacks throughout the day.

For those interested in obtaining points for the Collegiate Climbing Series, please make sure to note your intentions on the registration form. Baylor University is the last venue to earn points and will serve as the regional final. (Please note: you must present a University ID at registration if you are climbing for the CCS).

Baylor students, please apply at the SLC Front Desk.

All other participants, please complete the registration form here.
