Bouldering Wall

The UREC Bouldering wall is open to students and members, who get free shoes and chalk

UREC Outdoors Bouldering Wall (HPER 102)  

The bouldering wall is located in UREC Outdoors, HPER 102 and is free for individuals with a valid UA student ID, UREC members, or those with a valid guest pass. This wall, custom built by Eldorado Climbing Walls in the Fall of 2013, boasts a 35' traverse and overhangs up to 37 degrees. 

Shoes are provided at no additional charge. Participants are encouraged to bring their own chalk. All equipment is for use on the bouldering wall only. Climbers are welcome to use their personal chalk bag and climbing shoes.

Students and UREC members are strongly encouraged to reserve a bouldering wall space through the UREC Member Portal in order to guarantee your spot!  Reservations may be made up to one week in advance and will be accepted up to one minute before the reservation period begins.  Reservations will be voided 10 minutes after the reservation period begins in the event of a no-show.  Walk-in patrons will be allowed to boulder if a reservation spot is open. 

Bouldering wall reservations will be available in 60-minute intervals Monday-Friday during UREC Outdoors normal hours of operation.  Reservations are limited to three patrons per hour.  Climbers will be required to check-in at the bouldering wall using the UREC app barcode or by presenting their UARK identification card.
