In the central atrium of Jesse Philips Physical Education Center stands a four-sided, 25-foot pillar with more than 1,000 holds of all shapes and sizes—enough routes for climbers of any ability to challenge themselves and have fun. A 360-square-foot bouldering cave offers additional opportunities to develop strength and climbing skills. Qualified students provide instruction in bouldering, climbing, belaying, and even lead climbing.
