Climbing Wall & Bouldering Cave

Free
Try climbing anytime! No certification required. Bring your PantherCard – all equipment provided. PantherCard also needed to check out climbing shoes at the Equipment Desk. Please, no bags in the wall.

Bouldering Cave
The Bouldering Cave provides challenges to meet the needs of both beginning and experienced rock climbers in a no ropes bouldering format.

The cave has a variety of vertical and horizontal, overhanging terrain to challenge anyone. It is located in the Student Recreation Center, lower level, across from racquetball court four and adjacent to the climbing wall.

The cave is open during normal climbing wall hours. Users are asked to check in with the climbing wall attendant and are able to check out shoes.

Clinics:  Tuesdays, 7 – 9 p.m.; Fridays, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
One time cost:  $2, $4 & $6

Certification Challenge
Experienced climbers may take the written and practical tests without going through the clinic. Pass all skills to be certified for one year. You must take the full certification clinic if you do not pass the tests. Challenges are by appointment only.

Certification Renewal
Renew your certification by demonstrating practical skills to the on duty climbing wall supervisor. Sign the Climbing Wall Agreement then you are set for another year. No cost!

Kids Climb
Children ages eight to 16 may use the climbing wall when supervised and belayed by a certified parent or guardian.
