No experience is necessary to climb. Outdoor Pursuits Rockwall Staff are available to teach you the technique, lingo and skills you need to be proficient in no time!
The wall has routes for every skill level and interest. We offer bouldering (climbing without ropes less than 12’ off the ground), top roping (roped climbing with a belay) either on the 54’ or 38’ wall and lead climbing (sport climbing for the intermediate and advanced climbers). Climbing is great cross training which engages the core, endurance, and aerobic capacities of the climber.
A brief 10 minute orientation is required of first time users and belay classes and movement technique clinics are offered to help you gain the skills you need to join the fun. Follow this link for our rockwall policies.
The on sight climbing competition is a one day, on sight format through both bouldering and top rope climbing.
Prizes are award for men and women, beginner and advanced categories.

Belaying is the art of holding the rope so climbers remain safe.
