Our 40’ climbing wall offers bouldering, top rope, and lead climbing. Membership or a day pass are required after your first free climbing session.
All memberships include free shoe rental.

Witt Climbing Wall Hours – Suspended for Summer – Group Reservations Only

  • Please visit Climbing Wall Reservations for more information.
  • Time slots are between one to two hours with a 15-minute cleaning break from 6-6:15 and after the wall closes at 8:15. Due to COVID-19, we only allow bouldering and auto-belays at this time. Powdered chalk is not allowed, but liquid chalk is provided free of cost. We recommend bringing your own harness and shoes; equipment will be provided for those that do not own their own.
  • To maximize facility usage with limited hours, we ask you to show up during the first 20 minutes of your reservation time slot. Failure to show up within 20 minutes will result in a forfeit of your block to the first walk-in.
