Rock Wall
Rock wall staffperson with climbers
One of the most unique features at the SRWC is our custom-designed, 25-foot-high rock-climbing wall. FREE to all SRWC members! You can climb up and around the large rock, tackling fears and reaching new heights.
We offer bouldering and top rope climbing, including qualified staff at the ready to belay for you. But why wait for a belay when you can get qualified to belay yourself? We offer FREE Rock Climbing Classes that teach you how to become qualified to belay at our Rock Wall. We also offer lead climbing! Once climbers pass our Lead skills test, they are qualified to practice lead climbing at our Rock Wall.
Gear Rentals for Climbing our wall are FREE, such as climbing harnesses, chalk bags, belay devices, climbing shoes and lead ropes. Climbing is a very active and ever-evolving sport. Technique and climbing style will vary on an individual basis. New routes are set routinely and are set at varying difficulties. The Rock Wall Facilitators are equipped to assist you with all your climbing needs.
