Climbing Wall

The rock climbing wall, located in the Gillett Wellness Center and towering over 30 feet with routes for any skill level, is one of the premier indoor rock climbing facilities north of the Twin Cities. Climb top rope or lead up the cracks, corners, and crimpers. We offer instructional clinics, open climbing time, and group rentals.

During the academic school year, the wall is open three days a week. Contact the Wellness Center information desk at (218) 755-4135 for more information.
