About the Climbing Wall
Simpson University purchased the climbing wall in the fall of 2008 from the Shasta County YMCA with a significant contribution from student government. The wall was built in December 2001 was installed at the Shasta County YMCA in April 2002. It was relocated to Simpson in 2008.
The 30-foot tall, 8-foot wide, and 3 ½-foot deep wall stands north of the gym on the Simpson’s campus. It has four sets of anchors and surface on the front and sides; with an open back.
Having a climbing wall on campus benefits outdoor leadership majors and community members, who use the wall for leadership and teambuilding exercises.
