Reserve a Time to Climb

  • Climbers may reserve a time to climb through IM Leagues. Click here to login with your UGA Login or set up your IM Leagues account with your UGA Login. Once you have signed in with your UGA Login, select climbing wall and the date you want to climb. You will be able to reserve an available one hour time slot. If spots are available, walk-ins will be accepted.  A total of five climbers are allowed in the indoor climbing area at one time.

Auto Belay Stations

  • To maintain social distancing, climbers may not climb with a belaying partner and must use established auto-belay stations.

Gear Check Out

  • Climbers are encouraged to bring their own shoes and harnesses as only a limited number will be available for check out.

Face Coverings and Hand Sanitizer

  • Face coverings must be worn while climbing.  If a climber leaves the climbing wall area, they must wash hands or use hand sanitizer before re-entering the climbing area.

New to climbing or UGA's wall

  • We are not offering belay clinics at this time.  If you are new to climbing or new to climbing at UGA, you may climb using the auto belay stations or in the bouldering area.  Please let us know you are new when you check in.
  • We are offering a bouldering clinic this fall on 10/25 that covers the basics of climbing movement and falling technique.  Register here.
