Housed within the RWC, the Climbing Tower offers premiere indoor climbing for students at UCF. Standing at 41 feet, the tower is comprised of over 20 top-rope routes in a wide range of difficulty levels, making it a great place for beginners as well as avid climbers.
Bouldering routes are also available for those interested in climbing low to the ground. Come to the Climbing Tower to sign up for Belay Certification classes and find out about upcoming events and competitions. There is no experience necessary, so if you're interested stop by and talk with any of the helpful staff.
Belay sessions are offered to anyone who wants to learn how to belay. Belaying is a technique where a rope is secured to a person as they climb up the tower. Learning the proper belay techniques allow a student to help a friend safely climb the tower.
Belay sessions are available by signing up at least 48 hours in advance, but space is limited to 6 people a session. In order to be able to complete a Belay test, participants must have attended a previous Belay class and successfully demonstrate the proper skills. Sign up for Belay sessions at the RWC Climbing Tower front desk during normal business hours. Students can take the stairs or elevators to the first floor and go left. The desk is behind the stairs in the northeast corner of the main building.
The Adaptive Climbing Program has been created to assist students with different abilities to experience the joys and benefits of climbing. Our goal is to empower every participant that visits the climbing tower to reach their potential. Whether you are a complete beginner or experienced climber we gladly welcome your participation.
