Climbing Wall Facilities

ClimbingWith both a climbing wall and a bouldering center, Stanford boasts the most square footage of any collegiate climbing facility in the nation. Climbing is open to all Stanford community members and routes are designed to be accessible to everyone – from beginners to experienced climbers.

In addition to our open hours we offer quarter-long physical education as well as recreation classes that teach climbing basics, intermediate and advanced climbing techniques, and other technical skills. Our climbing wall also hosts campus-wide events and is available for private clinics. Policies for gym use are posted at each facility.

Follow us on Facebook to keep up with everything that’s happening at the wall!
