Outdoor Center and Climbing Wall Hours

The TCU Campus Recreation and Wellness Promotion Climbing Wall is sure to provide you with an exciting outlet, whether you are entirely new to climbing, have been climbing for years or are just looking for a challenging addition to your workout regimen. We offer instruction and supervision on our 30 foot indoor climbing wall, with over 25 top-rope climbs, and a variety of bouldering routes.

If you would like to be certified to belay at the wall, there are opportunities to be taught by one of our Lead staff members Mondays – Fridays during climbing wall normal operating hours  (excluding holidays and summer sessions).   You will be taught all proper belay policies and procedures during one training session. You must wait at least 24 hours to return to the climbing wall to demonstrate proper skills and complete the certification. There is no charge for belay certification instruction.

Some policies and procedures for the Climbing Wall and Rental program may change as information related to the COVID 19 pandemic and the need for physical distancing, as well as other precautions gets updated.  Click on the highlighted link for current policies and procedures.
