The Student Recreation Center Rock Wall offers excellent terrain for training on boulder, top rope, and lead climbing routes. We have 24 top rope stations, 6 lead wall stations and a bouldering cave. A mandatory skills test must be passed in order to climb in the facility. Basic skills classes are taught for new climbers Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday nights at 6 pm. We also offer Climbing Gym Rentals for groups on and off campus. If you would like to rent the gym for your group please contact Nicole Gallaher at (208) 426-5673.
