The Rock

The ROCK


The ROCK is Baylor's 53 ft., free-standing rock climbing structure located in the McLane Student Life Center. Students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to climb the ROCK during SLC operating hours.

The ROCK offers over 30 top-rope climbs ranging in difficulty from 5.65 to 5.13 for the beginner, intermediate and advanced climber. The ROCK includes several Lead lines as well as a natural climbing area for participants to practice their crack climbing skills.

The ROCK also features a separate, 13-ft. bouldering section, with problems ranging in difficulty from V0 to V8. Bouldering problems challenge climbers to solve more strenuous routes while remaining low to the ground.
