Are you tired of the same old thing? Experience the excitement of rock climbing. The rock wall will bring you almost 30 feet off the ground, but you'll have to work for it. Follow the routes that fit your skill level, and spend the semester challenging yourself on more difficult routes. The open area and natural light, along with the natural look of the rock will keep you climbing to the peak.
The Rock Wall is open to all Wellness Center members. Our welcoming and knowledgeable staff will hook you up with the equipment and the training you need. Do it for fun or as a part of your fitness routine, but do it! We dare you!
Still not convinced? The Rock Wall will challenge you mentally and physically, build confidence and provide an opportunity to meet other climbing enthusiasts.
Climbing and Fitness
There's nothing like a workout for climbing than by climbing. Gym climbing lets you work the specific muscles used for specific moves, and gain muscle memory at the same time. However you can't always make it to the gym. These rock climbing exercises should be used in a robust scheduled rock climbing workout. Forearms, arms and shoulders are important muscles to target. By doing these exercises you can workout the most important muscles for rock climbing and improve your climbing ability.
