Calvin's Climbing Center, is in the lobby of the Spoelhof Fieldhouse Complex. It's modeled after the Red River Gorge in Kentucky and has over 50 routes that change weekly. All instruction and equipment are FREE to Calvin students, faculty, and staff. Belay certification is required (at no cost) and takes approximately 30-40 minutes.
You don’t need to have rock climbing experience to use the Climbing Center! There are paths that range from beginner to advanced-level. Calvin provides harnesses and climbing shoes, and you have the opportunity to become belay certified. You can use the wall during regular open hours, or take a rock climbing class for a PE credit.
Waiver for Parents
You must sign & return the waiver to the staff at the climbing wall before participating in activities at the wall.
