Rock Wall

This 35 foot climbing tower extends to all three floors of the Wellness Center. Attached by an archway to a nearby bouldering wall, the climbing structure offers over 2000 sq. ft. of climbing surface, 800 hand holds and a multitude of climbing routes for all levels.

There are no set rock wall hours during the summer. To schedule an appointment to climb, please call (701) 858-4084.

How do I get started?
Come to the wall during open climbing hours. Trained climbing instructors will greet you and show you how to use the equipment. No previous experience is necessary, and you are encouraged to bring a friend!

What do I wear?
Wear clothing that allows you to move freely. Your shoes and harness will be provided by the Wellness Center. Please make sure long hair is tied back for you safety.

Do I need a partner?

What is bouldering?
Bouldering is rock climbing close enough to the ground that ropes are not needed. We provide crash pads and a spotter to make your landings safer.
