Rock Wall
Rock wall staffperson with climbers
One of the most unique features in the SRWC is the custom-designed, 25-foot-high rock-climbing wall. Members will be able to climb up and around the large rock, tackling fears and reaching new heights. We offer top rope climbing, bouldering and lead climbing to climbers who have passed a skills test and are qualified for lead climbing. Climbing is a very active and ever-evolving sport. Technique and climbing style will vary on an individual basis. New routes are made routinely. The Rock Wall Facilitators are equipped to assist you with your climbing needs. We supply equipment for FREE, such as climbing harnesses, chalk bags, belay devices, climbing shoes and lead ropes.
Belay services are offered during all open climbing wall hours. Technical climbing instruction can be received from a staff member during open hours or during Friday Climbing Classes.
