Drop in. Meet our Team. Send your route. Find community.

Join the vibrant climbing community at Auburn Outdoors. Our climbing community meets every climber where they are– whether it's your first time or if you've spent years on belay.

With two, 50-foot towers and a bouldering cave, climbing at Auburn Outdoors is a next-level adventure for all experience levels.

Basic Membership

Drop in between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m., Monday – Friday at the Climbing Wall on the lower level of the Recreation and Wellness Center.

Receive an orientation from one of our trained team members. During orientation you’ll learn:

  • Inherent risks at our wall and ways to stay safe
  • How to use the equipment needed to climb
  • How to use the auto belay system to climb on your own
  • How the difficulty rating system works for each route
  • About upcoming opportunities to learn how to belay safely, and try your first route!

Completing orientation earns you a "Basic Membership" at the climbing wall. A Basic Membership allows you to use the auto belays, boulder in our caves, and climb with a Top Rope Skills Verified Member belaying you.

Top Rope Skills Verification

Top Rope Skills Verification is required for anyone to belay a climber at our Climbing Wall. Skills Verification can be down any time during normal Climbing Wall Hours. Members must demonstrate proper knots, belay techniques, equipment usage, and use of climbing commands to receive verification.

Skills Verification can be done anytime for knowledgeable climbers or after 24 hours of taking a Fundamentals of Climbing Workshop hosted by our trained team at the Climbing Wall.

All members must renew Skills Verification annually.

Fundamentals of Climbing (Fundies)

This FREE workshop is available to members on a regularly scheduled basis. During this workshop members will learn proper belay techniques, equipment usage, climbing commands, and knots for top rope climbing at Auburn Outdoors Climbing Wall.

Participation in this workshop is not required to climb but is a great introduction to completing your Top Rope Skills Verification. For more information visit RWC Connect.
