Climbing Wall - Mountaineer Field House

Whether sending one of our 13 leadable routes, practicing on 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 over 3000 climbable square ft. and a height of 44 feet.  Its geometric plywood build is a route setter's dream. Located in the new Mountaineer Field House, our wall is the place to be.
