The UNO Climbing Wall is one of the most popular attractions in the HPER Building. In addition to its use by UNO students, faculty and staff, the Climbing Wall is open to the general public for a fee.
The Wall is just one of many ways the University of Nebraska Omaha (UNO) helps to promote the 8 dimensions of wellness.
Wellness means overall well-being. It incorporates the mental, emotional, physical, occupational, intellectual, and spiritual aspects of a person's life. Each aspect of wellness can affect overall quality of life, so it's important to consider all areas.
The UNO climbing wall is 2,500 square feet of top rope and lead climbing area, with a 1,400 square foot boulder in the center of the facility. The climbing surface is constructed of concrete with artificial holds, low angles, verticals, overhangs, and two arches. The floor of the facility has six inches of dense padding, and there are several movable crash pads to further protect climbers.
The climbing wall is open to all UNO students and Campus Recreation members. Non-members MUST stop at the entrance of the Wellness Center, register as a guest, pay guest fees, and bring the receipt to the climbing wall to give to the wall supervisor.
Non-member users may use the climbing wall starting at 12:00 pm Monday through Friday, and all day Saturday and Sunday (during hours of operation). Climbers ages 18 and younger are only allowed Friday (starting at 12:00 pm) and all day Saturday and Sunday (during hours of operation).
