Welcome to the Climbing Wall

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.

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 borrow climbing shoes from the OA desk.
  • 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.
  • Children may climb in the gym if they are accompanied by a parent/guardian.
  • There is no minimum age requirement-we will leave that up to the parent’s discretion. The minimum age to be able to become belay certified is 15.
  • Children and parents/guardians must each pay the Climbing Wall Semester Fee.
  • It is highly recommended that parents/guardians become Belay Certified. (This is to ensure that your child will be able to climb as much as they want. An OA staff member will be available to help but we cannot guarantee that children will have a belayer during their whole visit.)
