Climbing + Bouldering

Climbing Gym Hours

Know Before You Go

  • No prior climbing experience is needed to use the gym
  • First time users will receive an orientation and training that covers all of the key things you need to know to climb at the URWC Gym
  • Climbers may bring their own climbing equipment, but for those that need it, we provide climbing shoes and harnesses at no additional cost
  • Our staff are always happy to answer your questions - just ask!
  • If you have advice (beta, in climbing lingo) about how to climb a route you see another climber attempting, ask them if they want the beta first.
  • There's no one "right" way to climb - as the climber Alex Lowe said, "the best climber in the world is the one having the most fun."
