Bouldering Wall

Start Climbing!

The IUOA Bouldering Wall is now open! Free climbing for all: March 20-May 5.

No harness, no ropes, no problem

Experience the fun of indoor rock climbing on the IU Outdoor Adventures bouldering wall. Unlike other forms of rock climbing, bouldering doesn’t require a harness, ropes, or any other equipment. Instead, bouldering features short routes close to the ground, allowing you to focus on using strength and balance. A thickly padded floor helps prevent injuries in the event of a fall.

The IU Outdoor Adventures bouldering wall, located in an air-conditioned space in Eigenmann Hall, has nearly 1,000 square feet of climbing space on three walls up to 11 feet high.
