MTU Climbing Wall

In this post, I will give you all the information about the climbing gym MTU Climbing Wall in Houghton, Michigan.

The wall is approximately 30 feet high. It has 4 sections: a flat wall, a bulge, a roof, and a crack. Each section has a number of routes ranging from beginner to advanced. Additionally, our bouldering wall stands roughly 10 feet high at a 30 degree incline and features a variety of bouldering routes to work on and have fun with.

The climbing routes get reset twice a year. The wall and bouldering section are completely cleared and new routes are set for the Ridge Roamers Competitions in the fall and spring. Each climbing competition features 3 beginner, 3 intermediate, and 3 advanced routes. More routes are added throughout the semester by the members of the club.

As of 2022 there is also a kilter board in racquetball court #6.
