Climbing for Competitive Athletes.

Our USA Climbing program is designed to take committed climbers to the next level in skill and fitness. 

Coaches Rhett Lundy and Kristi Yates both have extensive climbing knowledge and high-level competitive experience in collegiate and national-level sports organizations.

In addition to the league competitions offered in-house at The Ascent, our USA Climbing team travels to represent the gym against other gym teams in our region (TN, NC, SC) and is part of the nationally-sanctioned competitive organization.

The Ascent’s USA climbing team practices year-round.   We focus on sport climbing in the spring and bouldering in the fall.  

USA Youth climbing is available to anyone ages 8-18.

To participate in weekly practices at The Ascent, you will register below, and pay a monthly coaching fee of $50/month.  This is a month to month membership option that can be cancelled whenever you like.

To compete in sanctioned local competitions, competitors must be active members of USA Climbing.  Memberships run from Sept – August.

More information on USA climbing memberships can be found at their website membership page.

USA Practices run from 7:00-8:30pm on Tuesday and Thursdays.  

They will include fitness training and climbing on both sport wall and boulder, as well as additional fitness training in the Crossfit Murfreesboro space.

A full list of USA sanctioned sport competitions can be found here.

Any competition is available to our competitors and may count toward regional qualification.  

At the beginning of each season, as a team we will choose comps we will attend together.
