Participant climbing on wall with Western welcomes you comments in other languages on the side and the Bronco Ledge next to that.

The Climbing Wall opens on Monday, Feb. 1

In addition to offering an anaerobic and aerobic workout, rock climbing exercises almost every muscle group. Rock climbing two or more times a week improves your strength, muscular and cardiovascular endurance, flexibility and mental toughness. All open daily climb rates are covered by the Western Student Association (WSA). Due to COVID-19 Protocols, all participants MUST register to climb and sign off on the waiver on Experience WMU.
