Climbing Wall

Stop by the climbing wall, located on the lower level of the Recreation and Wellness Center any time the wall is open.

 

After a quick orientation, members may climb using the auto belays, boulder at the cave and towers, and climb with a top rope skills-verified member belaying.

 

Use of the climbing wall is free to all members, and no experience is necessary.
