Rec Center

Climbing Wall & Bouldering Cave

Free
Try climbing anytime! No certification required. Bring a PantherCard. All equipment is provided. A PantherCard is also needed to check out climbing shoes at the equipment desk. Please, no bags allowed 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.

Certification Clinics
Learn belay skills, policies and procedures in this two hour clinic. Then pass a written and practical test to be certified for one year. Register at the outdoor equipment rental center at least 24 hours in advance or in the climbing wall area when open.
Clinics:  Tuesdays, 7:30 – 9:30 p.m.; Fridays, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.
One time cost:  $2, $4 and $6
Limit: Eight (minimum two)

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. Those who do not pass the tests must take the full certification clinic. Challenges are by appointment only.
One time cost:  $2, $2 and $6

Certification Renewal
Individuals can renew their certification by demonstrating practical skills to the on duty climbing wall supervisor. Signing the Climbing Wall Agreement sets them up 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.

Lead Climbing
Experienced climbers may lead climb routes during normal hours. Climbers must follow the designated lead route which is changed periodically by certified staff. Attend a Lead Climbing Certification Clinic to certify or challenge out. Climbers must be belay certified for at least six months or prove significant experience. See climbing wall supervisor for details.
