Climbing Center

The Climbing Center wall is a Nicros traversing, bouldering and climbing wall. The wall is 32 feet high and bouldering is allowed up to 14 feet. The floor surface is a Surface America PlayBound Surface, which is made of 100% post-consumer recycled tire rubber. The Climbing Center is open for bouldering during all building hours. Use of the ropes is allowed during staffed hours only.

 

The Climbing Center offers:


Bouldering

We offer fourteen feet of bouldering along the entire length of our wall and the wall is open for bouldering during all open Rec Center hours--with the exception of Thursdays from 11:00 - 11:45 a.m. for our new ClimbX class.

Top Roping

Top-roping is a style in climbing which utilizes a harness and a rope, as well as a climbing partner to manage the rope. While on a rope, climbers can reach the very top of our wall. Top-rope is only allowed during staffed hours.
