Find fun opportunities and new challenges at the CSB and SJU indoor climbing wall located in the Warner Palaestra on the SJU campus. 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 (or no experience) welcome! Stop by to look around even if you aren’t sure about climbing.

  • FREE (including equipment) for all CSB+SJU students, faculty, and staff. Bring your campus ID.
  • Waivers are required for everyone. You can complete a waiver in-person or submit a completed waiver by email to [email protected].
  • Climbers under age 18 are welcome when accompanied by a legal guardian.
  • We welcome members of the broader community. There is no admission fee but we ask the community to consider supporting The Wall through an annual membership donation to Outdoor U.
  • The Wall is a great place for group-bonding and team-building. Contact us if your class, sports team, business, scout troop, or other group is interested.
