Bear Climb 2022

Bear Climb is Baylor Outdoor Adventure’s annual climbing competition, and USAC Collegiate Qualifying Event, hosted at the Baylor Rock. Climbers of all ability levels are encouraged to join. Collegiate climbers from all schools in the USAC Southwest Region are invited to join. Baylor's climbing tower and boulder will be cleared entirely and re-set with over 30 brand new top-rope routes and boulder problems for the competition.

Climbing will be divided into two disciplines: bouldering and sport. Bear Climb will feature male and female competitor categories, and the option to compete in beginner, intermediate or advanced divisions.

A spectator-friendly finals round will be offered for the top five male and female climbers in the advanced bouldering and sport climbing divisions.

Climbers who register by February 4 will receive a Bear Climb T-Shirt. All climbers will receive a grab bag and entry into a raffle for door prizes.


Questions regarding Bear Climb should be sent to Mac Murchison.
