Climbing Wall

The 43 ft. indoor UGA Climbing Wall is open to all active UGA students and Ramsey members who have successfully completed a belay clinic. The outdoor bouldering wall is open to all active UGA students and Ramsey members (no belay clinic required).

The indoor climbing wall is currently closed for construction.  We anticipate reopening on Monday, July 9th.  The outdoor bouldering wall will be open regular hours while the climbing wall is under construction.  Additional information about closures can be found on the daily facilities schedule.
