Competitive Rock Climbing is an opportunity for youth to be challenged as individuals, while developing teamwork skills. Our program has seven different teams to fit all skill levels. Whether you are a complete beginner or seasoned climber our program has a team to fit you. Stone Summit team members are challenged during the team workouts lead by our experienced coaches who create a fun, yet focused environment. Our workouts include techniques and strategies that focus on balance, movement, communication, mental strategies and physical strength. Through working together our team members learn from and support each other while working toward their individual goals. The Stone Summit Climbing Teams not only excel at improving climber’s skills, they also strive to foster our team member’s self-confidence and their ability to work with a group which can help them succeed in all aspects of life. Through our teams, children learn the fundamentals of climbing, fitness, and mental strategy. 

The Stone Summit Climbing Teams are the premier competitive climbing teams in Georgia and are continually ranked among the top teams in the nation. The Stone Summit Climbing Teams are led by Head Coach Claudiu Vidulescu, who since 2007 has also been the Head Coach for both the U.S. Youth and Adult National Climbing Teams. Claudiu has been at the forefront of Rock Climbing training, development, and program management for over 15 years. Through his years of climbing and coaching experience Claudiu had guided the Stone Summit Climbing Team to excel in competitions on the local, national, and global level. Our team has placed in top 2 at the last three USAC National Championships and took first place in the 2017 Sport Climbing & Overall Team Championship.
