Indoor Rock Climbing Gym

Have you ever been rock climbing before? Experience the culture of rock climbing at Outdoor Adventures’ brand new rock climbing gym. The rock climbing gym is a part of the new addition to the Ben Kelly Center for Human Performance. Manufactured by Entre Prises, a world-premier artificial climbing wall manufacture, the gym boasts a forty-foot tall pinnacle and a twelve-foot tall bouldering wall. Both climbing surfaces incorporate Entre Prises’ proprietary free-form skin and are stained to look like natural, West-Texas rocks. The facility holds eleven top-rope anchors and nearly twenty routes of varying difficulty. With fresh routes put up every week, and specially trained staff there to assist you, the new rock climbing gym promises to be an epic adventure for any skill level.
