At A Glance
NOTE: Climbing Wall and Bouldering Grotto access will be limited March 19-25, 2018 due to maintenance and rerouting.
The 55-foot tall climbing wall located at the Lake Wauburg South Shore has 19 routes to challenge both novice and advanced climbers.
Auto Belay System
An auto belay is an automatic belay device that takes up the slack as a climber ascends the climbing wall. When the climber reaches the top, or if they fall, the auto belay catches the climber and slowly lowers them to the ground. Lake Wauburg has four auto belays that cover 6 routes.
Like climbing at Lake Wauburg? Take it to the next level and get a belay card! Belaying is the safety technique used to control the rope and keep the climber safe while they climb. A belay card allows you to belay your friends at the climbing wall. This means no appointment is necessary to climb! Belay cards are only available to Gator 1 Card holders. Belay classes begin at the start of each day – Weekdays: 1:00pm and Weekend days: 10:00am. Belay classes are two hours long and we encourage you to take it with friends so that you may belay each other.
