Meet new people, try a new sport and get in great shape!
The Rock Wall will bring you almost 30 feet off the ground, but you'll have to work for it. The open area and natural light, along with the natural look of the rock will keep you climbing to the peak. Talk to our staff for the best climbing techniques, information on how to incorporate climbing into your workout routine, or just for an interesting conversation!
The Rock Wall is available to all UND students and Wellness Center members at no extra cost.
No climbing experience is necessary to use the rock wall!. The rock wall is a great place to learn climbing skills. All rock wall attendants have climbing experience and can answer most of the questions new climbers may have.
Rock Wall (Belay) Training
If you want to top rope climb without relying on the rock wall attendant for a belay, consider learning how to do it yourself. If you already know how to belay, just show us your skills and we will certify you free of charge!
You will learn to:
- Properly fit a harness
- Properly communicate
- Belay (what it means and how to do it)
- Tie into your harness
No sign-up is required. Just stop by the rock wall during operating hours. If the rock wall is too busy, belay training may need to occur at another time to ensure participant safety.
Reserving the Rock Wall
The Rock Wall is available to reserve for team-building events, camps, birthday parties, and any other excuses you can think of to have fun for a few hours.
