Climbing Wall

The Radford University climbing wall is located in Peters Hall. This fully featured Nicros ART wall stands 21 feet high and boasts 8 top rope anchors. The entirety of the structure may be climbed without the use of artificial holds with the hardest natural route being graded around 5.11b on the Yosemite Decimal System. The crack system spanning the center of the wall is a popular challenge for many students.
