Climbing Programs

Climbing Facilities

Get outside on campus and try something BOLD! The Outdoor Climbing Tower is beginner friendly and will provide climbing gear and expert instruction. During the Fall semester and the Summer the tower is open for UAF special events as well as for private event rental. During the Winter and Spring we are open for ice climbing and dry tooling. Open hours are Wednesday, Thursday, Friday 4-8PM & Saturday 12-4PM. Hours and seasons are weather dependent. The climbing tower is FREE to UAF students with an SRC membership. Non-students or students without an SRC membership will need to purchase an SRC pass.

Want to use the Indoor Climbing Wall? Sign up for a Climbing Wall Safety Orientation class at the front desk of the Student Rec Center. This hour long class gives you access to the indoor climbing wall whenever the SRC is open! The class gives you expert belay instruction and a climbing and belay certification for $10.

Rentals and Programming

Every year we have our Top Rope Throwdown in the Fall, Ice Jam in the dead of winter & our annual Boulder Comp in the Spring. All comps are free with an SRC day pass and open to the public!
