leadable routes, practicing for two free-form cracks, learning multi-pitch skills on our rappel platform or putting on climbing shoes for the very first time, our climbing and bouldering wall is unparalleled on any college campus. This state of the art wall designed by Western students and built by Entre Prises boasts 3,114 climbable square ft. and a height of 43.5 feet. Its geometric plywood build is a route setter's dream.
