Climbing Wall FAQs

Q: How much does it cost to climb at the wall?
A: Climbing at the Wheaton College Climbing Wall is free for students, employees and their families!  Harnesses and shoes available on a first-come, first-served basis at no additional cost.

Q: Can I bring children to the wall and is there a minimum age?
A: Although we do not have a minimum age, open climbing times and routes are set for our college-student constituency.  Children under 14 must be belayed by his/her parent or legal guardian.  Belay training is available on-site.

Q: What is The Comp all about?
A: Our annual climbing competition is the highlight of the year; it's a super fun night of climbing, crate-stacking and door-prizes.  Think of it more as a "fun night" than a "competition."
