Rock Climbing Wall

The climbing wall is designed to facilitate top-rope and lead-rope climbing as well as bouldering. Routes are set to challenge the beginner, intermediate, and advanced climber.

Students and SRWC Members have the opportunity to climb the rock wall at no cost. Free certification classes are taught at the SRWC at weekly intervals, which are posted at the rock wall desk. For more information, including a complete listing of certification class times and dates, please contact the SRWC.

Listed below are a few policy highlights, and a printable overview of all Rock Climbing Wall policies and procedures can be located on the SRWC Policies page.

Uncertified Climbers

Climbers must present their current Washburn University ID to the rock climbing wall monitor. New climbers must sign a waiver and fill out a climbing registration card before climbing. Individuals may climb or boulder as many times as they want without certification. During these sessions all tie-ins, knots, and equipment checks will be made by rock wall monitors. Uncertified participants are not allowed to belay climbers, regardless of prior experience.

Certified Climbers

Climbers must present their current Washburn University ID to the rock climbing wall monitor. The monitor will locate the climber’s registration card in the file and confirm that the climber is currently certified and the information is updated.

Certification Renewal

Certifications may be renewed beginning July 1st each year. All previously certified climber’s green certifications will revert to a red certification. Climbers must demonstrate their skills twice before re-gaining their green certification.
