The CSU Climbing Sport Club competed at the Collegiate Climbing Series (CCS) National Championships this past week in San Diego, California, operated by USA Climbing. The event took place at Mesa Rim Climbing Center. Overall the club had 24 people compete in 6 total disciplines (3 each for men and women), with 4 team members qualifying for finals. It was the second national appearance for the CSU team (they placed third last year), and the club took first place in the overall team result!
CSU beat out the University of Texas (2nd place), and CU Boulder (3rd place) for the win. Over 50 teams competed for the title from around the country.
