Regardless of your major, these courses typically feature interdisciplinary benefits beyond those possible in traditional classroom settings.
- University of Utah Climbing TeamWe are a group of climbers training to compete in USA Climbing’s Collegiate Climbing Series (CCS). This group is for those individuals who enjoy climbing and are looking to take a step into the world of competition or further their climbing abilities.

This group also provides an opportunity to network with fellow climbers in the Salt Lake area.
Utah Climbing Access, Community, & Stewardship Organizations:
- Color the WasatchColor the Wasatch is focused on building a community for climbers of color in Salt Lake City and along the Wasatch Front. Our goals are to empower POC climbers, highlight the achievements of such climbers, and to make climbing a more diverse and inclusive sport. We work closely with local gyms and outdoor brands including the Front, the Salt Lake Bouldering Project, Black Diamond, and Gnarly Nutrition. We hold regular events and climbing nights. We also run joint climbing nights with SLAQC.
- Salt Lake Area Queer Climbers (SLAQC)SLAQC creates a supportive space for all queer people to enjoy climbing. We host weekly meetups, raise visibility by collaborating with brands who share our mission, advocate for increased access to climbing with gym partners, and promote queer stories and organizations. Through these efforts, we empower queer individuals, create a more inclusive climbing community, reduce barriers to access, and cultivate collective knowledge.
- Salt Lake Climbers AllianceThe Mission of the Salt Lake Climbers Alliance is to serve as the unified voice of all climbers in the greater Wasatch region, engaging as an advocate to protect outdoor climbing access and as a steward to maintain sustainable climbing resources in the Wasatch and surrounding regions.
- Friends of Indian CreekThe Friends of Indian Creek works with land managers to promote responsible climbing, but also provides resources that help alleviate recreation’s impact on the region.
- Northern Utah Climbers CoalitionThe Northern Utah Climbers' Coalition is an advocacy group committed to creating and maintaining sustainable and responsible climbing opportunities in and around Logan Canyon.
- Southern Utah Climbers' AllianceThe mission of the Southern Utah Climbers Alliance is to be a unified voice to work proactively with local and Federal land managers to ensure access, preserve sensitive terrain, and replace aging safety hardware in the Southwestern Utah, Northwestern Arizona, and Southeastern Nevada region.
- Access FundAt Access Fund, we are on a mission to protect climbing access and the integrity of America’s outdoor climbing areas. Today, 1 in 5 climbing areas in the United States is threatened by an access issue—whether it's private land lost to development, public land managers over-regulating climbing, or climber impacts degrading the environment, the list of threats is long and constantly evolving.
