We provide two, subsidized, options to access local climbing gyms: Stone Gardens and Seattle Bouldering Project. Must be purchased at the Outdoor office.
Located just south of Seattle U’s campus, this facility offers bouldering opportunities. An unlimited number of SU climbers may use the bouldering gym at any given time through an individual, punch-card system. Additional perks include access to SBP’s fitness equipment and classes.
We offer a limited number of subsidized vouchers each quarter which are sold on a first come, first served basis.
Please represent Seattle University appropriately when participating with SBP.
Located in Bellevue (about a 20 minute drive from campus), this incredible facility offers bouldering, top-rope, and lead climbing opportunities. There are a limited number of memberships designated for current Seattle University students, faculty and staff, thus a maximum of SU climbers using the climbing gym at any one time. Membership benefits include a free day pass to any first time guest, free use of lead ropes, discount on classes, and 10% off pro shop merchandise.
