Group Rentals

Due to COVID-19 we are temporarily suspending climbing wall rentals.  Please contact Justin Stout at if interested and we will keep you up to date on the current availability of the wall.  

Want to host your next student group gathering, staff development training or birthday party at our climbing wall? Our Climbing Center is a great place to take a group of people looking to have fun, experience something exciting and learn more about themselves and the group. No previous climbing experience needed to have a great time!
