Never been climbing? Let us help you get started!
To use the Climbing Wall on your own, you must first watch our five minute orientation video and sign our waiver. After the orientation, equipment is free to use while bouldering (climbing low to the ground without a rope).
Using the ropes - Top roping
Top roping in our facility constitutes climbing up to 30 feet using a rope. If you are new to top roping and would like to learn how it works, we offer belay certification classes throughout the week that will teach you the techniques needed to climb using ropes. The belay class usually lasts about two hours. As with bouldering, equipment is free for all users. The current belay class schedule can be found at the Climbing Wall kiosk and on our home page. Belay classes can also be scheduled by appointment.
For experienced climbers
If you have previous climbing experience, our staff can provide a proficiency test to asses your skills for both Top Rope and Lead Climbing. This proficiency test is free and can be done anytime the gym is not too busy.
In addition to bouldering and top rope climbing, the Climbing Wall offers beginner, intermediate and advanced academic climbing classes for credit. Sport lead climbing and seasonal ice climbing are also offered.
