Climbing Wall

New to Climbing?

No problem!  You can stop by the climbing wall located on the lower level of the recreation and wellness center any time the wall is open and give it a try for no cost or commitment by using our multi-visit pass.  The pass allows you to visit the wall for 3 visits, after which time you can take the FREE fundamentals class and use the wall. Anytime the wall is open. Climbing is a thrilling and rewarding sport that can be enjoyed by those with all experience levels, but it is important to realize that climbing involves inherent risks. We feel strongly that one of the keys to climbing safety is high quality instruction, and we strongly recommend participation in one of our FREE fundamentals of climbing clinics.
