  • Northeastern rock climbing team finds immediate success

    Boston Magazine - 11/04/2014

    All Evan Goldfinger wanted was a rock climbing wall. The now second year Northeastern University student was determined to get a wall on campus when he first got to the university. Instead, he ended up founding a nationally successful rock climbing team.

    “Ideally, we wanted a rock climbing wall. So how do we get a rock climbing wall? We prove we could do very well at climbing and be beneficial to everyone,” Goldfinger says. “I came in and we thought, maybe get a rock climbing team going.”

    Goldfinger, who is the team president, was introduced to fellow Northeastern student Josh Levin (now the captain), who happens to be a 19-time winner of the national rock climbing championships. The two worked together, along with the university, to start a competitive Northeastern rock climbing club team earlier this year. Two weeks after tryouts, the team won regionals. A few weeks after that, they placed second at the 2014 collegiate National Championships.
