Climbing Wall

The Climbing Wall is an Aztec Recreation membership benefit. Located inside the ARC, the wall is 30 feet high with 9 top ropes giving 1500 square feet of climbing space. Our climbing instructors offer credit climbing classes every semester. To climb during open hours, members must complete the safety orientation which is offered two or more times per week.

Safety Orientations

  • Successful completion of one hour class is required to climb regardless of experience
  • Three specific steps:
  • Orientations offered Monday - Thursday at 2pm and Friday at 6pm
  • You learn:
    • Procedures & policies
    • Equipment use and care
    • Belaying Skills and communication
    • Avoiding risk and injury
    • Attitude & etiquette towards safety

Pre-Orientation Video

  • All ARC Members wishing to access the climbing wall are required to view this video prior to registering for a Safety Orientation.
  • This Climbing Wall Quiz, which reinforces the Video Instruction, will be administered at the start of the Safety Orientation.  Anyone scoring less than 100% will not be permitted to continue with the one hour class.  Climbing Wall Orientation Quiz (PDF)
