Hours and Location

Hours of Operation

** 1/10/22: Restrictions have been lifted and all affiliated climbers and guests are welcome, as per our usual admission rules. Attendance will be limited to 50 climbers in the facility. Cornell has revised the on-campus masking expectation to higher-quality masks – ATSM medical masks, N95s, KN95s, and KF94s — as these masks do a significantly better job of limiting the spread of infection than do other masks.**

Climbing Wall access may not be indicative of other Fitness Centers or Pools on campus.
