The NMSU climbing wall stands 28’ tall and has ten ropes for top rope climbing. Student staff work on changing the routes on a weekly basis to keep it fun!

The brand new bouldering section is steep, and climbers are able to top out. This section of the climbing wall is used for our Climbing Wall Competition Series during the fall and spring semesters, and it has new routes set every month.

Eligibility

The climbing wall is available for full time students and Aggie Fit members. All climbers must sign a waiver and pass an orientation prior to using the NMSU Climbing Wall. If you are already skilled in climbing and belaying, you may opt to pass a skills check instead of attending a full orientation. Come by and sharpen your climbing and bouldering skills!
