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 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.
