COVID-19 Impact

To safely limit the number of individuals at the climbing wall, users are encouraged to reserve space in advance through the Wellness and Recreation app. Climbing times are in 60-minute time blocks. In general, Carmichael is using 25 percent occupancy levels for activity spaces.

While climbing, users must wear a face-covering at all times.

Climbing basics classes are canceled for the Fall 2020 semester. Belaying at the climbing wall will be limited to staff only.

Until further notice, items such as climbing chalk and eco-balls are not available
