The climbing wall at Earlham College is dedicated to the memory of Ethan Solomon and his passionate love of climbing and the outdoors.
Facts and Figures About Our Wall
Constructed by Eldorado Wall Systems in 1999 and part of the new Athletic and Wellness facility at Earlham College, the climbing wall is state of the art and includes sculpted holds and faces, bolted lead climbs, and a natural crack climb. 10-14 different climbs are set ranging from beginner to advanced.
Who Can Climb
The climbing wall is open to Earlham College students, faculty, staff as well as the general public. Day and semester passes include the use of the wall, harness, and shoes and can be purchased at the front desk (see rate information below). The wall can also be reserved for private functions (see below). Children must be older than 5 to climb. Climbers under 17 must have a parent/guardian sign a liability waiver for minors.
Special Group Use
We welcome community centers, camps, schools, and other organizations to use our wall. Special group use rates start at $30 an hour for 8 participants.
