Rex Activity Center to create state-of-the-art climbing wall
Adams State University’s indoor climbing wall is going to get a whole lot better. The Rex Activity Center, in conjunction with architects from Eldorado Climbing Walls, will install a new climbing terrain designed to be an all-ages and all-abilities- accessible climbing wall. The new climbing wall will be designed with everyone in mind to accommodate bouldering, adaptable terrains, dihedrals and arêtes for technique training, and a rappel ledge.
The Rex Activity Center will be closed from May 10 – August 8 for project completion. Due to the short-term closure, Conley said such services as yoga and general summer activities will be relocated to other campus facilities.
“Adams State has seen an increase in rock climbing with the addition of our ASU Climbing Team, so a new wall is much anticipated,” said Elvie Conley, Rex Activity Center coordinator of recreational facilities. “We’re ecstatic to be able to offer a new climbing wall to our community, with a total of 2,080 square feet of new climbing surface. The layout and look will be an entirely new feel for the facility.”
The present wall is 1,800 square feet and was installed during the facility’s original renovation in 1995. Rex Activity Center offers a variety of recreation programing, ranging from intramural and club sports to outdoor adventure programing.
