Rock Wall

  • Reach new heights by trying out the Wellness Center rock wall. Modeled after real rocks, our wall offers the most realistic appearance and rock climbing experience possible.

    The rock wall is open 6-10 p.m. Monday through Friday (Fall and Spring semesters only).

    Rock Wall features:

    • Free-standing (belaying) wall is approximately 30 feet tall
    • Many unique routes of varying difficulty
    • Can be used by climbers of all abilities, from beginner to expert
    • Variety of terrain and variable width cracks, arêtes, roofs, slabs and overhangs

    The separate bouldering wall is 12 feet high and 25 feet long. It offers steep terrain, but is low enough to be climbed without ropes and has a high impact mat for protection from falls.

    Rock climbing shoes and harnesses are provided.

    Rock Climbing Classes:

    Climbing with ropes is a two-person sport. One person climbs while their partner belays, or secures the slack end of the rope to ensure the climber will not fall. Our Belay Qualification Course will teach you the proper techniques to climb safely and safely belay other climbers. Upon successful completion of the course and after you pass our belay qualifications skills test, you’ll be able to use your new skills at our rock wall any time we’re open. Although you don’t need any climbing experience to take these classes, we recommend you climb with us at least a few times prior so you know what to expect.
