this facility offers lead and top-rope climbing opportunities. There are 8
"memberships" designated for either current Seattle University students or
faculty/staff, thus a MAXIMUM of 8 SU climbers may use the climbing gym at any
one time.Vertical World Official Website: http://www.verticalworld.com/

Class size limited to 6. You do this directly through VW and we recommend calling ahead to reserve your space.
