Frequently Asked Questions

How do I get involved?

Send an email to templeclimbingclub@gmail.com stating your interest. Alternatively, you could talk to a climbing club officer in person if you happen to see one at the wall.

Do I need previous climbing experience to join climbing club?

No experience is necessary. Members range over a variety of skill levels.

How can I improve my climbing ability?

Just climb! But also, practice, focus, and follow advice from “The Send Station.” Also, don’t hesitate to ask more experienced climbers for tips.

Where can I get climbing shoes and other gear?

Outdoors stores such as REI or Eastern Mountain Sports carry climbing equipment. Commercial climbing gyms such as PRG also sell gear. Online retailers can be a great place to buy shoes and other supplies, but it is highly recommended that you try shoes on in person before ordering online.

Check out this guide on buying climbing shoes! Also, you can watch this bomb guide by Adam Ondra on shoes!
