Climbing Tower

The UREC Climbing Tower is a 28' tall free-standing climbing facility that provides UWGB students with the opportunity to experience the unique challenge of rock climbing right here on campus. At over 800 square feet, the tower has six stations at which students can climb, each with their own unique routes. Constructed in a panel “art-wall” design intended to match the look and feel of natural granite, the UREC Climbing Tower is a feature of campus everyone should experience!
