Climbing Wall

The Student Recreation Center houses a 28 foot indoor climbing wall for bouldering, top roping, and lead climbing.  The climbing wall provides staff for supervised roped climbing from 4-8PM Monday - Friday.  Bouldering is available any time the Recreation Center is open, and requires members to complete a brief orientation from the front desk staff prior to climbing.  Belay clinics and assessments are available from the staff by request during supervised climbing hours, and a belay certification is required in order to belay at the wall.

Climbing shoes, chalk bags, helmets, harnesses, and belay devices are available free of charge to SRC members.

The following clinics will be offered at the wall to SRC members free of charge:
