If you have any questions please contact the Rock Wall through their Facebook.

Ever heard of Cosmic Bowling? Same idea. We black out the entire wall area, hang black lights, and put up glow-in-the-dark holds and tape. Needless to say, you've never climbed like this before.
Date: October 30- November 5, 2016

If you want to top rope climb without relying on the attendant for a belay, consider learning how to do it yourself. Belay training never expires. If you already know how to belay, just show us your skills and we'll certify you free of charge! You will learn how to:
- Properly fit a harness
- Properly communicate
- Belay (what it means and how to do it)
- Tie into your harness
Date: No sign-up required! Stop by Friday 6-8pm or Sunday 6-7pm. We reserve the right give you a rain check if the wall is busy so that we can teach you safely.
Think you have good balance? You're wrong. Slacklining is essentially tightrope walking, and we have our own at the wall. We'll set it up Sundays 8-9pm, Wednesdays 9-10pm, or upon request.
Stop by the wall to give the rockwall a try!

"An American Ascent" is a documentary film about the first African-American expedition to tackle North America's highest peak, Denali. NOLS partnered in the creation of the film with the hope of addressing the often overlooked issues of race and the outdoors, while chronicling the many challenges of climbing one of the world’s most iconic peaks.
