Open Climb (top roped and free climb)
Active climbers are invited to boulder or belay at any time during regular club hours when no class or training is taking place. Members belaying must have their belay card on hand. Members under 18 require parental consent to use the wall. Please check with the front desk or see the rock climbing group class schedule (link to Kaf flyer)
Upon successful completion of any course, you will receive a belay card that authorizes you to use the WSHC rock climbing wall at your discretion.
