  • Children must be at least 5 years old and may climb during weekend hours or weekdays during
    posted university breaks.
  • Patrons may purchase a ten climb, or semester equipment rental pass.
  • Non-Members may purchase a five climb pass with a photo ID exclusively for the climbing wall.
  • Must have a photo ID for each climbing wall visit and check-in at member services.
  • Proper athletic apparel appropriate for climbing is required.
  • Harnesses are provided at no charge to climbers. Patrons may also bring their own equipment.
  • Through Campus Recreation’s Instructional Programs, periodic classes are offered to teach the
    fundamentals of climbing.
  • Experienced climbers can be certified by the SRF’s climbing wall staff to climb and belay without an

    re-testing.
  • Only locking belay devices can be utilized on the climbing wall unless an instructional class requires other belay devices.
