Drop-in Climbing - Field House Wall

The field house wall is equipped with auto belay devices. An auto belay is a device that climbers attach to their harness that takes up the slack as the climber ascends, and then safely controls the descent as the climber is lowered to the ground. Climbers can clip in and climb without having to depend on a partner to belay them. The TRUBLUE auto belays allow climbers the flexibility to get in a quick endurance workout. 

Before using auto belays, all climbers must have completed a waiver and a quick orientation before their first time climbing on the wall. Once your waiver and orientation are complete, you will receive a sticker that can be put on your picture identification. Present your picture identification with a sticker to climb. If unable to present a climbing sticker, climbers will be asked to sign another waiver.

Orientations are offered during drop-in climbing times and is approximately 5 minutes in length. Orientations are subject to climbing staff availability.

Climbers under the age of 13 will need direct supervision by a person age 16+.
