The Wisconsin Indoor Climbing Series is a grassroots community-building effort by seven university climbing programs. The series started with 5 Wisconsin based competitions in 2011. As of today, seven universities host competitions in Minnesota and Wisconsin . WICS fosters strong relationships between the different climbing walls and outdoor programs and professionals. We average about 80-100 climbers per competition. The series now runs from late fall into early spring.

Participants earn points based on their finish at the participating competitions. The top co-rec team and individual climbers are recognized at the conclusion of the final competition.
