The Climbing Wall

Climbing wallSterling College has a 30 foot climbing wall on campus, located near the “Lower Dorms,” Hamilton and Jefferson. Here, students are presented with a history of rock climbing, as well as being trained on the ground in knots, rope-handling, and belaying. On the wall itself, students practice balance, movement, and technique, as well as get introduced to rappelling. Outside of class time, the rock wall is available for students to practice in their free time.
