FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
How do I access the Climbing Wall?
It's easy! Simply purchase a day or semester pass.
Where can I buy a semester pass?
Semester passes for the Climbing Wall are available online or in the Programs Office (GRE 2.204).
What does a semester pass include?
A semester pass includes unlimited access to the Climbing Wall during operating hours for the entire semester. This pass allows the participant to boulder only. It does not include top-roping.
Do I need to take a Skills Check or an Orientation class before purchasing a pass?
No. We no longer require you to complete a Skills Check or an Orientation class prior to purchasing a day or semester pass.
When can I use the Wall for top-roping?
Due to the size of the Climbing Wall, and based on a recent user survey, we have found that almost all of our semester pass holders utilize the Wall for bouldering. For this reason, and in order to make the Climbing Wall more accessible for more people, we will be limiting top-roping to special events, scheduled classes and designated top-rope programming.
I have a friend visiting for the weekend - can I bring them with me to climb?
Yes. While they are not eligible to purchase a semester pass, day passes are available in the Programs Office and the Gym Store for $8. Please note that your guest will first need to have purchased a facility guest pass in order to gain access to Gregory Gym.
Can I reserve the Climbing Wall for a special event?
Yes. The Climbing Wall is available for private events for both UT affiliated and non-UT affiliated groups. Fees vary with the number of participants, length and content of the event. Questions about group packages and Wall rentals should be directed to the Programs Office at 512..471.3116.
