    Does anyone know how hard it is to make the mountaineering club team? I have some very limited previous experience (about 25 hours over the course of a week) so I know how to belay and make all the knots. It's something I'd really like to get into if I went to USMA, but I'm wondering if I could even make the team. I can climb 5.10s pretty reliably and I've done a 5.11a but it was a stretch and my belayer let me rest a lot :wink:.

    Is mountaineering a sport or a club?

    It's a club sport and they actually have tryouts.
