Campus Recreation is providing a wide variety of climbing opportunities for the spring semester.

Those who are new to climbing should try out the wall during staff belays held 4–9:30 p.m. Mondays, when staff will help you get started in this fun activity. Belay workshops offer opportunities for newer climbers to learn how to belay, allowing them to climb with friends during open climbing times.

A trip to Southern Illinois later in the spring will allow students to test their climbing skills at the Outdoor Rock Climbing Workshop in Giant City State Park.

Custom workshops in any of these formats can be scheduled by calling (309) 438-8427 or emailing
