Your Climbing Wall

Located at the back of the ECU SRC, Adventure Leadership offers an exciting, new, and free experience for anyone who can use the gym. Without students who love climbing and without students who are willing to try it, we wouldn’t exist. Therefore, our climbing wall is your climbing wall. We strive to have friendly and experienced staff to create a social atmosphere that anyone can be comfortable in. No experience? No problem! We are more than willing to give tips and encouragement and we have harnesses and climbing shoes free for you to use. Whether you come alone or bring your friends, we’re here to make sure you have a great time. 

The climbing wall will be closed 12/13 to 1/6. The wall will reopen on Sunday, January 7, 2018 at 4:00PM. Enjoy your winter break.

We, at Adventure, ensure that the safest practices in indoor rock climbing are used during your experience. Which, you can learn to! A “Belayer” is attached to the same rope as their climber, and pulls the rope through a device to minimize slack and fall distance. We offer free and fun safe belay workshops to any and all patrons during normal hours. The workshop is designed to teach all of the safety policies Adventure Leadership employs, so that you can climb easier.

Belay clinics last 45min to an hour and are offered during normal wall hours. Just ask a staff member for help when you check in and they will be happy to teach you a new skill. 

A “Belay Certified” climber may use their own approved climbing harness (or an approved harness we offer) and may belay other climbers. The test to gain the certification after the workshop is free and a score of 100% is required to pass. The test can be taken any time, at least one day after the workshop.

CRW offers opportunities for the ECU Community to reserve the climbing wall for private events and birthday parties.  Climbing events are booked in 2 hour increments with a max of 20 people. We provide all climbing harnesses (adult and children sizes), shoes (adult sizes only) and trained instructors to facilitate your event and make sure everyone enjoys their experience. If you have a larger group you would like to bring to the wall, please contact us directly to see if we can accommodate your group.
