You said something about climbing???

Climbing will soon be open for those climbers who want to get back in the gym. However, in light of the risks associated with COVID community spread, things will be a bit different.

We are excited to see folks in the gym again.

  • Space in the gym will be limited to 22 total climbers at any time. We will revisit this cap as the risk of COVID in our community subsides.
  • Climbing is available for Spring/Summer passholders and Campus Rec members, we will not be offering 'try-it climbs', climbing instruction, or parties/gatherings at this time.
  • Masks will be required at all times, even while climbing.
  • Climbers will need to reserve spots online through the portal linked below. Each individual can RSVP for up to 2 slots every 7 days (each slot is 1 hour, 50 minutes). If a climber has maxed out their 2 available weekly RSVP's and wants to climb more frequently, they can call the OAC (402-472-4777) to inquire if walk-up space is available in the current climbing session. This policy will be revisited based on demand for spaces and crowding.
  • All seating areas, door handles, cubbies and metal climbing gear will be wiped down and sanitized between climbing sessions. Please be aware, due to the nature of climbing holds, we cannot sanitize holds in between use. We do not recommend you resume climbing if you or people in your social network are at a high risk for COVID.
  • Passholders with a monthly pass, billing will resume in August. Be watching for more details.
  • Climbing sessions will be available at the following times:
    • Monday-Friday:
      • 12 - 1:50 pm
      • 2 - 3:50 pm
      • 4 - 5:50 pm
