The Hoofer Mountaineering Club is a student-run organization that 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. 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 in Kentucky. We run both club trips and more relaxed unofficial trips for last-minute planners! If you're more experienced (or looking to improve), we also offer a climbing team!
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.
