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. No experience is necessary.

Before using an auto belay device, all climbers must have completed a waiver and an orientation from our climbing staff. Once your waiver and orientation are complete, you will receive a sticker that can be placed on your picture identification. The sticker will allow climbers to use the auto belays anytime the field house wall is open for drop-in climbing. If unable to present a climbing sticker, climbers will be asked to sign another waiver.

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

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


  • All ages are welcome.
  • Waivers are not required. 
  • Outdoor shoes are not permitted. Proper climbing shoes may be signed out with photo identification.
  • Socks are required and can be purchased for $2.00.
