Climbing

CCA Vision: To develop adventurous individuals with a sustained lifelong passion for the sport of climbing.

CCA Mission: Learn skills and techniques that will enable the climber to pitch himself against challenges that the sport of climbing has to offer, and to develop individuals who stop at nowhere in their quest to find new obstacles to overcome challenges posed to them.

The NJC Climbing team develops passionate individuals, and sportsmen who excel in their endeavors. The team values unity, and aims to be proficient in applying the skills learnt in challenging and surviving various indoor and outdoor obstacles. The team prizes physical fitness and mental resilience to overcome all obstacles and challenges encountered.
