Climbing Wall Safety Orientation

We offer classes every Tuesday & Thursday at 6:00pm* during the Fall and Spring Semesters  --Call 474-5886 to sign up! 

 *Orientation starts promptly at these times.  Late comers will miss necessary information and therefore will not be qualified to climb at either wall.  The class is about an hour-and-a-half long.  

Cost is $10 per person. You register and pay before the class takes place.  If you need to cancel please do so in advance.  Space is limited and classes fill up fast!  Individuals must be over the age of 14 to belay at either climbing wall.

Private certification classes can be scheduled by contacting Christian Mogensen (see below). The cost for a private belay certification class is $20 per person.

Reminder that Climbing & Belay Certification cards expire after 1 year!  Sign up for an Orientation Class to recert.  Bring in your old card to waive the cost of the class.

Sign up is available at the SRC front desk.  All classes will be held in the indoor climbing wall.
