Route Setting

Do you want to contribute to your climbing wall community?  Then route setting with your fellow climbers may be the next step for you.  While you don’t need to be a 5.14 climber to set at the University Recreation Climbing Wall, you do need some experience climbing before you come to set routes.  A basic understanding of climbing flow and movement as well as grading systems is highly recommended. 

In order to route set, you must attend a route setting session with the climbing wall staff. Route setting is hosted on Tuesday from 7-11pm and Sundays from 8am-12pm. The Lead route setter will work with you to set a route and teach you how to grow as a setter. 

For more information regarding route setting, please contact Arturo Gavilanes at 509-335-8393 or arturo.gavilanes@wsu.edu.
