Climbing Wall

Challenge yourself with an uphill battle on our 50-foot Indoor Climbing Wall!

The SAC houses an indoor Climbing Wall located on the East Recreational Court, adjacent to the indoor track and is operated by the Venture Outdoor Leadership Program.

The Wall has beginner, intermediate, and advanced routes, with both slab and overhanging sections. A less than vertical section (slab) with many natural features (cracks and a chimney) and lots of handholds is more inviting for beginner climbers. Finger cracks and a large roof will offer a significant challenge for the experienced climber.

A UNC Charlotte ID is required to enter the SAC and use the Climbing Wall.  Your first visit of each semester to the climbing wall is free! Our staff is available to belay on a first-come-first-serve basis and you are encouraged to bring a belay partner. Guests over the age of 18 are welcome to come but must pay the SAC guest fee.

Venture Outdoor Leadership offers Intro to Climbing workshops for those interested in learning how to rock climb and being certified to belay.  You can also book the climbing wall for your group, academic class or department.  Please visit Venture's website for more details.
