No matter if you prefer bouldering or top rope, here are some rad spots you need to “climb on.”

Bouldering

If you haven't ventured out into the wild woods of rock climbing before, stop by Auburn Outdoors’ Rental Shop (located to the left and down the stairs of the The Rec's entrance) to get some quick tips and useful safety gear. Be sure to check our website for hours of operation, and remember, safety first!

Also, if you are interested in trying your hand at traditional climbing but don’t know where to begin, be sure to check out Auburn Outdoors’ trips and workshops each semester for updated adventures and opportunities to learn more!
