Climbing Wall

Our Climbing Wall is a 38.5 ft. vertical climbing wall. It is one of the largest indoor climbing walls on a college campus in the upper Midwest! The wall area is unique in design as it is the centerpiece of the facility. Visitors at the climbing wall will have access to a variety of activities such as 11 top rope stations, 2 lead climbing ropes, an overhanging bouldering area, belay clinic offerings, and the ability to participate in annual climbing competitions!
