Open Rock Climbing (All Ages)


No registration required. All climbers are required to sign an OAP waiver form prior to participation (signed by a parent or guardian if under 18). The SDC is not responsible for lost or stolen property. Please do not leave valuables unattended.

All ages (we can allow all ages to climb as long as we have the proper fitting equipment). No need to sign up, just stop by the Climbing Wall between 6 and 7 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and try your hand at the climbing wall. We will provide all of the necessary safety equipment and staffing to make your experience a safe and fun one! Just show your ID or day pass wristband to the Multipurpose Room desk attendant and head on into the Multipurpose Room to join the fun!
