Tour de Nebraska Tent Service

Due to high demand and our limited capacity in the gym (15 climbers), you now have the option to reserve climbing sessions. To ensure equitable access to climb we've set up the RSVP system with the following parameters:
  • Sessions are set for 2p-3:50p; 4p-5:50p; 6-7:50p. You can arrive up to 20 minutes after the start of the session, but after that we will give your spot to any waiting climbers.
  • Climbers can claim up to 2 sessions in any 7-day period and no more than 1 session per day
  • Walk-ups are still welcome, but session RSVP's will be granted priority in access.

You said something about climbing???

Climbing is 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 15 total climbers at any time. We will revisit this cap as the risk of COVID in our community subsides.
  • Try-it climbs are available for UNL students. Times can be reserved at the following link: Try-It
  • Anyone can register for Climbing Basics instruction at Climbing Basics registration
  • Masks will be required at all times, even while climbing.
  • 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.

You have registered for the ride of your life! Now leave the rest to us.

UNL Outdoor Adventures’ Hassle-Free Tent Service allows you more time to enjoy the tour and less time dealing with the “chores” – like setting up your tent, transporting your gear and remembering to bring that much-needed coffee. Each day you arrive at your designated campsite to find your luggage carefully placed inside your tent. Relax in a camp chair and wash the day away with a fresh towel. Enjoy a cup of delicious Cultiva french-pressed coffee before going back on tour.

Tent Service will begin on the afternoon of June 16 and continue until the end of the tour the morning of June 21, 2020.

Please join us in 2020!
