Standing 40-feet high and featuring a variety of routes, the climbing wall is a great place to hang out, learn some new skills, and get more comfortable overcoming challenges in a positive way.

  • All experience levels welcome! Feel free to stop by even if you aren't sure about climbing and just want to take a look.
  • FREE (including equipment) for all CSB and SJU students, faculty, and staff. Please bring your campus ID.
  • Waivers are required for everyone at The Wall. You can complete a waiver in-person or submit your completed waiver by email to [email protected].

Community Members

We welcome members of the broader community at The Wall! While we do not charge an admission fee, we ask the community to consider supporting The Wall through an annual membership donation to Saint John's Outdoor University.


The Wall is a great place for group bonding and team building, whether you are a member of the CSB and SJU communities or a local organization like a high school, small business, scout troop, or other group.
