The Climbing Wall will provide bouldering only in Fall 2020.
- Climbing wall will be open in 90 minute increments for up to 5 climbers at a time.
- 12pm-1:30pm will be reserved for vulnerable populations.
- Climbers need to register in advance for a climbing time.
- No equipment for the wall will be available to rent at this time.
- At this time chalk will not be permitted to be used at the wall.
- If you are under the age of 18, we need a "wet-ink" on paper parent/guardian signature on the Climbing Wall Policy Statement and Inform Consent before you can climb.
Explore the forests, paddle the rivers, climb the rocks, discover what you can do. Boone has over two million acres of wild, rugged, and undeveloped land at our doorstep. It will take a lifetime to experience it all, so you'd better get started now.
