Bouldering is permitted during wall hours only. An orientation session (see below) is required before your initial climb.

- All climbers are required to complete a climbing wall orientation and pass a belay test.
- All climbing equipment is provided.
- Experienced climbing instructors are on-site and are there to help make sure you have a safe and enjoyable climb.
USask Climbing Connection
Not everyone has a partner to climb and belay with. That's where we can help!
Look no further and sign up for our new platform, USask Climbing Connection.
How does it work? Once you sign up, you can communicate with other USask students looking for a climbing partner.
Wall orientations are offered on weekdays at 12:00 pm, 3:15 pm and 6:30 pm, and weekends at 3:15 pm and 6:30 pm and you must reserve your spot online.
All participants must bring a partner to complete orientation, only one of you must register.
If you do not have a climbing partner, contact us to learn more about Group Orientation Sessions throughout the academic semester.
