Rock Climbing Wall

The Northern Vermont University-Johnson rock climbing wall is a converted racquetball court filled with artificial rock walls and ropes providing realistic introduction to rock climbing.  The climbing wall possesses terrain features that allow for flexibility in climbing routes to accommodate most novice climbers as well as challenge the most accomplished ones.

We have a dedicated staff who open the wall and can teach you everything you’ll need to know to have fun and stay safe. And we can provide all the gear you need to climb. So whether you’re a rock-crushing climbing fiend or a curious newbie thinking that climbing is way too scary or dangerous, come try it out! We promise you’ll have a great time.

Directions & Parking:

The climbing wall is on the basment level of the SHAPE Facility. There is plenty of free, on-campus parking available to visitors of the facility. To avoid a ticket, be sure to park in lined visitor parking spaces.
