EWU's Bouldering and Rope Climbing Facility for Students and Community Members

About the Climbing Wall

The Climbing Wall is FREE for students who are currently enrolled in classes and for community members with a current URC Pass. The URC Pass can be purchased at the Customer Service Desk.

Never been climbing? Let us help you get started! To use the Climbing Wall on your own, you must first watch our five minute orientation video and sign our waiver. After the orientation, equipment is free to use while bouldering (climbing low to the ground without a rope).

Top roping constitutes climbing up to 30 feet using a rope. If you are new to top roping and would like to learn, we offer free belay certification classes every Saturday during the school year from 12pm-2pm. If Saturdays don't work, belay classes can also be scheduled by appointment with the Climbing Wall Manager.

If you have previous climbing experience, our staff can provide a proficiency test to asses your skills for both Top Rope and Lead Climbing.

We offer beginner, intermediate and advanced climbing classes that can be taken for credit or non-credit.
