Listed below are two opportunities to utilize local climbing gyms, offered through an affiliation with Seattle U's Outdoor Adventure Recreation program. At the essence of it all, the OAR program's endeavor is to introduce or enhance access for people new to outdoor recreation. As such, we have formed affiliations with SBP and VW to offer discounted opportunities for the Seattle U community. Please enjoy them!
Located just south of Seattle U's campus, this facility offers bouldering opportunities for current students, staff, and faculty of Seattle University. An unlimited number SU climbers may use the bouldering gym at any given time through an individual, punch-card system. Seattle Bouldering Project official website: www.seattleboulderingproject.com
To purchase visit OAR during office hours to complete a registration form and purchase one of the following options (prices shown are inclusive of the 10% local sales tax):
Note: There is an EFT Monthly option offered directly through SBP on a monthly debit system. The cost is $52for students (plus tax and a $40 initiation fee) but it is a 6-month minimum commitment with additional fees to deactivate/reactivate your membership during academic breaks (like December, March, and the summer months). This option may ultimately be more cost effective if you live locally, year-round.
Located in the Magnolia neighborhood (about a 20-25min drive from campus), this facility offers lead and top rope climbing opportunities. There are 6 "memberships" designated for either current Seattle University students or faculty/staff, thus a MAXIMUM of 4 SU climbers may use the climbing gym at any one time.Vertical World Official Website: http://www.verticalworld.com/
How to participate:
Learn the fundamentals needed to climb vertically: fitting the harness, tying a figure 8 knot, and proper belaying techniques in a 2 hour class. Includes all necessary equipment. Class size limited to 6. You do this directly through VW and we recommend calling ahead to reserve your space. The cost is $35 (this is the student rate, 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.
