Free Outdoor Adventures: Weekly Crate Climbs

Check out and experience what crate climbing is all about. This challenging activity involves stacking and scaling crates as high as you can. It's harder than it looks, but you'll catch on quickly!

You are suited in a harness and belayed by an experienced Outdoor Adventure Leader. How high can you climb without the crate tower toppling over?

All ages welcome! Those under 16 require a parent/guardian over the age of 18 in attendance. 

Date and time(s): Wednesdays starting Feb. 9 until March 23 (no session on March 16 for spring break) from 6 to 8 p.m. on Court 6 inside of the Rec.  

This event is free, stop by and give it a try! 

Want to get competitive? Sign up for the Crate Challenge with top prizes for the highest climbers at our special Intramural Competition on Wednesday, March 30.
