Learn to climb at UCalgary

Designed specifically for teaching rock climbing and mountaineering skills, the Outdoor Centre climbing wall features concrete panels combined with real rock and artificial holds, vertical and horizontal cracks, finger holds, friction bulges and overhangs. It's the perfect place to learn how to climb or practice rappelling, building anchors, lead climbing and crevasse rescue.

In a separate area, the bouldering wall is 3.5 metres high, has a fully padded floor, and features a variety of climbing surfaces and holds for a broad range of ability levels to learn. 

Climbing programs are operated by the University of Calgary Outdoor Centre and can be found on their website.
