Climbing Wall

Climbing wallThe climbing wall features a 40-ft rock wall with 11 top ropes and a 12-ft freestanding boulder. Top rope climbing, bouldering, and lead climbing are all available to anyone who passes the skills checks or passes our certification class. Most necessary equipment is provided for free checkout on a first come, first-serve basis, including harnesses, belay devices, carabiners, and climbing shoes.

How to get started
Climbers must complete a waiver and receive a brief orientation prior to climbing on the wall or boulder. Those age 17 and under will need a parent/guardian signature. Before belaying, climbers must attend and pass an Orientation and Belay Class or for experienced climbers, pass a Belay Skills Check. Our climbing staff is happy to administer belay skills checks during open and staffed wall hours.  If you are new and want to try climbing the wall, our staff can belay you prior to you taking a class, provided that the wall isn’t too busy at the time.

 

Bouldering
Climbers may boulder during non-open wall hours, provided they follow facility use policies.
