Team Ascension Competition Team member June climbing in Women's Finals

Coach Lee Petersen trains participants for competition in USA Climbing competitions and other competitions around the country! Our team members focus on technique, endurance, and strength training. Developing self-discipline is a core component of being a team member. We help young climbers learn the skills to climb efficiently and safely to enjoy the sport of climbing for a lifetime! Be prepared to reach high and pull hard.

Team members must be available for all local competitions the team participates in and are expected to travel to regional competitions (usually in Oregon) in late fall/early winter.

Team Ascension is by invitation only. Most get started in the club before moving to the Junior Team. We hold tryouts from Junior Team in late winter or early spring. If you want more information, please call us at (907)452-5462. The Junior Team learns many of the same skills and techniques as the competition team but in a more casual environment. In this class, competition is encouraged but not required.
