Climbing Wall

Our Climbing Wall is offering a mix of programs this summer in an effort to keep you engaged, learning, and stoked for climbing. Some of our programmings will be in the form of on-site clinics, just like you're used to. Some will be online, via Zoom, teaching you new skills and helping you refine old ones. ALL programming will abide by physical and social distancing measures, as recommended by the CDC, and it is our priority to keep our UREC family safe.  

 

In order to climb at our wall, we ask that you abide by our SRC policies, and read through our updated COVID policies. In order to ensure distancing, we also ask that you use our resrvation system to reserve time and space at our wall. 

 

Check out what we have to offer! 

  

Lead Climbing Clinic

SRC
8/8/20
[Su] 1:00 p.m.

Are you getting comfortable top-roping, and want to learn a new skill that you can apply outside? Lead climbing is the method of climbing where you clip your rope into protection as you ascend, rather than being belayed through one anchor at the top of the climb (top roping). In this clinic we’ll teach you the skills needed to effectively lead climb and belay. The clinic will be instructional and have open time for students to practice skills they have been taught and skills they already know. Harness, shoes, and belay devices will all be provided. Program rating is level 3: Participants must have a belay qualification through the WSU SRC Climbing Wall, and have a strong base knowledge of roped climbing methods and systems. For those patrons who would like to take the qualification test without the clinic, we will provide you with that opportunity early in the clinic to make best use of your time. Cancellation Policy: With receipt or proof of purchase, full refunds are given until the registration deadline. 50% refunds are given until the day of prior to the class. Sorry, no refunds given on or after the day of the class.
