The ROCK and Bouldering Cave will open for Summer on June 4th!
The ROCK is Baylor's 52 ft free-standing rock climbing structure located in the McLane Student Life Center. Students, faculty, staff, and their approved guests may climb the ROCK during normal operating hours. Note: all guests must complete a liability waiver and pay the appropriate guest fee.
The ROCK offers at least twenty-five top-rope climbs ranging in difficulty from 5.6 to 5.13 for the beginner, intermediate and advanced climber. The ROCK also has several sport lead routes and a natural climbing area. There are multiple bouldering problems as well.
All equipment including shoes, harnesses, ATCs, lead ropes, and carabineers are available for checkout at the ROCK for no additional cost. All check out equipment is for use at the ROCK only. Personal equipment must be inspected by the ROCK staff before climbers may use it at the ROCK.
