Our 35-foot-tall climbing wall is a Nicros A.R.T. Wall that is designed to look and feel like real rock to simulate outdoor rock climbing. There are 11 top rope climbing stations, one auto belay and a bouldering cave. Padded flooring with ground anchors and crash pads help add safety to the climbing area. Lead bolts, rappel anchors, a hang board and an anchor cleaning station add variety to our climbing program offerings.
Patrons must first gain access to the SRWC (through an existing membership or purchase of a guest pass) to participate in the climbing options.
We offer free Try Climbs every Friday night during normal climbing wall hours. With the assistance of our staff members, you will receive three climbs up the wall. Try Climbs are a great way to see if you might want to purchase a wall membership in the future!
- Try Climb: $4 (3 climbs up the wall)

All climbers must successfully pass our free Safety and Skills Test to purchase a wall membership. Our free Introduction to Climbing Clinic is also available, and highly encouraged, to make sure climbers are prepared to pass the exam. Speak to the Climbing Wall staff members for more details.
