OAR endeavors to introduce or enhance access for people new to outdoor recreation. As such, we have formed affiliations with two local climbing gyms: Seattle Bouldering Project and Vertical World. These gyms offer discounted opportunities for SU students, faculty, and staff.
Located just south of SU campus, this
facility offers bouldering and fitness opportunities for current students, staff,
and faculty of Seattle University. An unlimited number SU climbers may use the gym (including fitness equipment and fitness classes) at any given time through an individual, punch-card system.
OAR offers a limited number of subsidized punch cards each quarter. For more information about SBP's amenities and fitness classes please visit their website: www.seattleboulderingproject.com
Visit OAR during office hours to complete a registration form and
purchase one of the following options (prices shown include the 10%
local sales tax):
$12 student + tax=$13.20
$16 adult + tax=$17.60
$100 student + tax=$110
$130 adult+ tax=$110
Located in the Magnolia neighborhood (about a 20-25 minute drive from campus),
this facility offers lead and top-rope climbing opportunities. There are eight
"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. For more information about Vertical World, please see their website: http://www.verticalworld.com/
Learn the fundamentals needed to climb vertically: fitting the harness, tying a figure-eight knot, and proper belaying techniques in a two-hour class. This course includes all necessary equipment and has a limited class size of six. You can enroll directly through Vertical World; we recommend calling ahead to reserve your space. The student rate is $35 (be sure to specify or they will charge you $50), but if you bring your receipt to the OAR office during hours, the Outdoor program will subsidize $20 of that fee.
I am originally from NJ and have grown up exploring and playing in the woods of New York State's Catskid Mountains. After years of traveling with family exploring in the west coast, I have fallen in love with outdoor activities including hiking, backpacking, mountaineering, snowboarding, and bouldering. When I graduate I wish to incorporate outdoor recreation into my nursing career so I may help people enjoy all that nature has to offer.

Now I see the secret of making the best persons, it is to grow in the open air and to eat and sleep with the earth.
