About the Club


The Hoofer Mountaineering club is a student run organization based out of University of Wisconsin - Madison. The club wants to keep people out on the rocks while also maintaining a collective of knowledgeable climbers who can both teach and pass on their knowledge to others: young and old; novice and adept. We love teaching new members or even just getting people together to all go climb, whether it be at Devil's Lake or as far as Red River Gorge. We run both club trips and more relaxed unofficial trips for those hipsters who are too mainstream for formality (or more like  for those who do last minute trip plans).

Meetings are every Thursday at 7:00 p.m. in the Mendota Lodge in Memorial Union. Dues are only $30 a year and gives you access to our gear locker! We also have a climbing team for those interested on becoming more confident and overall better climbers (isn't that everyone?). Not to mention joining the club also gives you discounts at  the climbing wall in the Sett and 20% off on climbing gear at Fontana Sports if you tell them you are a member.
