Designed to replicate the unique beauty of West Virginia’s outdoors, the wall is 50 feet tall and features more than 2,000 interchangeable hand-holds with more than 3,500 square feet of climbing surface. The wall features include crack climbs, overhangs, dihedrals and arêtes which allow for a wide range of climbs, from beginner to advanced. There is also a bouldering cave with overhanging climbing surfaces that will challenge even the most accomplished climbers. Students of all skill levels can challenge themselves, hone their skills, and keep in shape at the WVU Climbing Wall.

Any Student Recreation Center patron can use the climbing wall. See the Types of Climbing page for more information or stop by the climbing wall desk.
