Climbing at E&H

There are many opportunities to learn about bouldering and rock climbing with the Center for Outdoor Studies. Come with us on a trip! Here are some places we love to go climbing:

  • Grayson Highlands State Park
  • Hidden Valley
  • Breaks Interstate Park
  • Guest River Gorge
  • Pilot Mountain 

Indoor Bouldering Crag

Join us for Open Hours at the Crag! Come see what the Crag and its community is all about.  

Curious about climbing but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry. Members of the Outdoor Program are available during open hours to help give direction and plenty of high fives. The Crag is a great place to prepare for outdoor trips. 

Open Hours: Sunday - Tuesday, 6-10 p.m.

Keep an eye on our social media pages for Friends and Family days. Once a semester, we open our doors to the local community for an afternoon of climbing fun. 

The Tower

Have you noticed the big wooden structure outside of our building? Meet our friend, The Tower. We use The Tower as a convenient and fun way to introduce folks to rock climbing. It is also a great tool to help groups develop teamwork. If you have a group interested in utilizing The Tower, contact us! We are happy to help. 

Looking for More?

Be sure to take a look at the Center for Outdoor Studies courses. The CFOS coursework takes climbing to the next level by taking an in depth look at concepts such as history and key figures of climbing, climbing gear, indoor/outdoor bouldering, knot fluency, belaying, top-roping, sport climbing, anchors, traditional lead climbing, rappelling/lowering, and body movement.

Students who complete required CFOS courses are eligible to apply to our trip leader program. Get paid to work outside! Email us at to learn more about this unique opportunity.
