At LCU we venture outside the box, or shipping container in our case! In Fall 2009 LCU added a Rock Wall to our Recreation Center. We have added Rock Climbing Classes through our Exercise and Sport Sciences Department.
Our Rock Wall Green Project was made possible by taking two shipping containers and stacking them end to end. This allows climbers to climb almost to the top of the field house.
If you don't want to climb the rock wall, take the stairs! Inside the rock wall are stairs that lead all the way to the top. At the top of the stairs you can exit and repel down the side of the wall.
The rock wall will be open for free climb February 2, 2012.
There are several options to climbing:
- Bouldering - Cost is Free, you can climb unharnessed up to 10 feet.
- Tier 1 Certification - $20, auto belay climbing
- Tier 2 Certification - $10, lead climbing and manual belay
- Tier 3 Certification - $5, repeling
- Annual recertification fee $10, for any currently certifications held.
- Currently enrolled in the rock climbing class - $5 test out of all certifictions
*Fees go towards equipment replacement. Certification classes will be offered.
