Welcome to the Climbing Wall!

The University of Guelph Climbing Club (UGCC) is open to climbers of all abilities. If you've never climbed before or if you've been climbing for years, there is something for you. Our staff can teach you everything you need to know to climb safely and well. Come visit us at the brand new Climbing Wall in the Guelph Gryphons Athletics Centre. We hope to see you in the climbing gym, you'll be scaling walls before you know it!

Membership Fees and Information

  • TBD

UPDATE: Due to our new registration system, we can no longer offer the walk-in "First time is free" pass.

Instead the UGCC membership now has a 10 day trial period. If you decide it is not for you, a refund can be honoured by Client Services within the first 10 days

Membership can be purchased at Client Services or from one of the online options on Connect (uoguelph.ca/connect).

*All clubs memberships require a prerequisite base athletics membership.  Currently enrolled, on-campus students already have this prerequisite membership during the Fall and Winter semesters.  For all other community participants and students attending classes in the summer months, a monthly base membership is required for purchase before enrolling into a club.*

FAQ's

  • Q: Do I need to know how to belay (or how to climb in general) in order to be a member?
    • A: NOPE! We offer free training and testing in belay skills (note that a certification at the UGCC does NOT equate to a certification to belay at another gym), as well as free beta and encouragement!
  • Q: Can I boulder (as opposed to rope-based route climbing)?
    • A: YES! We just finished phase II of construction on the club, and we have a brand new boulder cave, which has been filled with a fresh crop of boulder problems for your enjoyment!
