The Rock



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

The ROCK offers 30(+) top-rope climbs ranging in difficulty from 5.5 to 5.13 for the beginner, intermediate and advanced climber. The ROCK includes several sport lead routes as well as a natural climbing area for participants to practice their crack climbing skills.

The ROCK includes the Baylor Climbing Center featuring 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.
