Climbing Wall

The climbing wall is a key attraction at the USD Wellness Center. This 38-foot indoor climbing wall has 4,300 hold combinations and nine rope stations. Whether you are an expert climber or a novice, we are sure that you will find this feature a challenging and fun workout.

Getting Started

You do not need to be an experienced climber to use the climbing wall. Reserve your climbing time during climbing wall hours where trained climbing instructors will teach you how to use the equipment. Be sure to wear clothing that allows you to move freely, and shoes that fit snugly and lace up. Avoid open toed or open heeled shoes. Our staff is here to assist you or help you find a partner to work with.


Due to COVID-19 and the safety of our members and staff, only two individuals will be allowed to climb at the wall per hour.  We encourage participants to reserve their spot to ensure their climb time.  Please check in at the front desk to check-in.
