Outdoor Adventure is proud to present its climbing facility to students, faculty, and the local community. The wall is designed with ten different sections allowing many climbers to ascend at one time. The wall is 24' high with two cracks and three roof sections. Additionally, we offer 150 square feet of climbing space in our bouldering cave. You don’t have to be an advanced climber to use the climbing wall. Outdoor Adventure welcomes climbers of all abilities.

First time at the wall? No problem. Our staff can help you get started and there are several beginner level routes that you can try. Experienced climber? We've got you covered too, with many intermediate and advanced level routes for you to choose from. Really experienced? If you're up for an even bigger challenge, ask the staff about our lead climbing classes and test your abilities in a whole new way.

A certified staff member will be available when the wall is open, and can assist you with any questions about the climbing wall, our great trips program, or anything else related to Outdoor Adventure.

How to start climbing at outdoor adventure

  • To start to climb you can come as a guest of a certified climber ($6 guest fee) and boulder or climb on the wall, but you cannot belay anyone.

To become a certified climber:

  • Patrons must pass the belay certification process by taking our climbing wall fundamental skills verification exam. Once you are belay certified, you are then able to become a member of the wall.
  • If you would like further instruction on how to belay and properly climb, we offer a free belay clinic every Mon-Thurs at 6 P.M.
  • Memberships are sold on a semester basis. Each semester patrons will need to recertify their belay certification and then will become eligible to renew their membership.

Things to know

  • The belay clinic is not required to become certified. Patrons may take the belay exam at any point.
  • Patrons are not eligible to take a belay certification within 24 hours upon taking a belay clinic or in the event of not passing the belay exam.
  • Shoes are required. No barefoot climbing.
  • You may use your own tennis shoes or rent climbing shoes from the OA desk.
  • Shoe rental is $3 each time you climb. You can also purchase unlimited shoe rentals for the semester for an additional $10 on your membership.
  • A climbing harness can be checked out from the attendant at the desk free of charge.
  • Patrons may use their own shoes and climbing harness but must use OA belay devices, carabiners, and rope.
  • OA hosts regular lead climbing clinics and offers separate lead climbing memberships.
