View the current Climbing Wall schedule here.
In the Recreation Center expansion of 1996, the rock climbing wall was built, which converted a racquetball court into 1,400 square feet of climbing. This wall was constructed using a “freeform” method allowing for a wider range of features and realistic design. This wall has areas for bouldering, 3 top ropes, and 10 lead climbing lines. A completed online Climbing Waiver is required for all climbing wall activities.
Climbing Wall HoursClimbing wall is open for use during Recreation Center hours of operation. All climbers wishing to use the wall will need to have a current Climbing Pass (see below for pass information) on file. If you are not a climber and would like to try climbing, Belay Rides/Try-a-Climb is a great option!

Patrons may not climb without a paid admission.

Passes are available to those who have successfully completed an orientation to the gym and to bouldering and/or by completing a skills-assessment with a climbing instructor to ensure proper use of the gym. If you are unsure whether your assessment is current, please ask one of our friendly climbing staff.
