Climbing Wall Participant Access

The SLWC Climbing Wall will be open to Utah Valley University students, staff, and faculty who have a membership to the SWLC.  It will also be available to those who purchase a guest day pass. Guest day passes are available for $5. Personal climbing gear is allowed but will be subject to a climbing wall staff inspection.

Due to capacity restrictions the climbing wall will be operated on a first come, first serve basis. Once the facility reaches capacity we will ask guests to wait or come back at another time.

In addition participants must:

  • Read and sign Agreement to Participate/Awareness of Risk form.
  • Participate in an initial instructional orientation (Basics Clinic) or pass a belay check.
  • Read and sign Safety Policies and Rules Form.

All youth below the age of 18  must have a parent/guardian read and sign the Agreement to Participate/Awareness of Risk form. Both parents/guardians and youth must sign the waiver.

An adult must accompany children younger than 16 years of ageat all times. Children younger than 13 years of age will be designated as "Climber Only" (not eligible to belay) and must be accompanied by a registered Climbing Center parent/guardian. Both child and parent/guardian must pay rental charge for equipment as necessary.
