Guided Outdoor Climbing
The Outdoor Recreation Center runs guided rock climbing adventures at local and regional climbing destinations. Coopers Rock is WVU's local crag that features rope climbing and bouldering. It is best known for bouldering as it draws visitors from afar to test themselves on the classic gritstone. We also visit the New River Gorge and Pisgah National Forest in NC.
Climbing Day Trips | Coopers Rock | $30.00
The ORC runs day trips for climbing at Coopers Rock. Our focus is for newer climbers to try climbing outside and learning some basic skills important to rock climbing, such as tying yourself into your harness, basic safety, and technique. The sites we visit at Coopers offers a variety of different route difficulty, from beginner routes for those new to natural rock climbing, to tougher sequences that prove a serious challenge! These trips are held during the middle of the day.
