Location: Marga Hosaeus Fitness Center

Hours: The wall is open for bouldering anytime the facility is open.

New as of fall 2018, the wall features over 2,000 ft² of wall space that ranges from less-than-vertical slab to overhanging. It has an educational platform that will allow students to practice multi-pitch and top-managed climbing skills. There are four sets of anchors that allow for top-ropes. The wall also has an inclined campus board.

Facility users can access the climbing wall for bouldering anytime the facility is open, with exceptions for classes, facility closures, and regular re-setting of parts of the wall. Please follow the posted rules. Top-ropes are only accessible during belay clinics.

The climbing wall is free to all paid facility users.
