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, operated by the UNC Charlotte Venture Program.

Built by Arete Climbing Systems, the Wall consists of a custom-sculpted climbing surface with additional holds attached. Natural features (cracks, aretes, roofs, chimneys) give the look and feel of real rock, and numerous movable handholds give flexibility in route setting.

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.

Rental Equipment: Climbers can rent all required climbing equipment at the Wall. Visit the Venture website for more information on the Climbing Wall and equipment rentals.

The Wall is closed during special events in the SAC.
