We're excited to introduce three TruBlue Auto Belay Devices!

These devices will allow you to climb even if you can't find a belay partner, and are also great for training sessions.

Please note: An auto belay certification is required for use. If you already have a UAF climbing wall certification, all you need to do is set up a time with us and we will get you a new card that reflects the auto belay certification.

Harnesses

Climbing harnesses are available at the SRC front desk with a PolarExpress card and current UAF Climbing Wall Certification card.

Rental harnesses may only be used at the UAF climbing facilities.

All climbers MUST display a current belay certification card from the harness or chalk bag.

If you do not have a current belay certification you will be asked to leave the climbing wall, and register for a climbing wall safety orientation class, or schedule a re-certification.

Any continued violation will result in being banned from using the climbing wall.

Lead Climbing

Join us Wednesdays from 5-8pm at the SRC climbing wall for Lead Night!

In order to lead climb you must pass a lead climbing and belaying assessment. Ask the wall monitor to be checked off.

We will have two lead ropes and quickdraws for two teams available for use. You may bring your own lead gear, but this will be checked by the wall monitor to insure the equipment is safe to use.
