Climbing Programs


A fun and challenging traverse across the wall or just part way up the wall instead of ascending the whole wall. Boulder is done short distances from the ground and does not require a belay but may require spotting. Bouldering is a great way to work on your technique. Bouldering is available anytime the SRWC is open to those that are trained and bouldering approved. Just check in with the membership desk and get a wrist band.
Open during SRWC operation hours
