The Crag Climbing Wall
Our wall is full of life!
February 29, 2016 - Mini Mountain will no longer provide Climbing Wall services at SBCC, effective March 21. They are hanging up their carabiners after 10 years of providing Climbing Wall programs, services, and camps to over 13,000 climbers. Management is in the process of finding a new contractor to provide quality climbing experiences for you, your family and friends. We wish Mini Mountain staff the best and thank them for their service.
February 9, 2016 - We are sorry for the misprinted fees for the Summer Rock Climbing Camp (course #106298) for August 22-26 on page 13 in the Summer Day Camp brochure. The correct fees for the one-week camp are $399 for Bellevue residents and $440 for non-residents.
Come and climb our walls. The Crag is 33 feet tall and sculpted to look and feel like Index granite. The wall offers three belay ropes with at least five climbing routes of varying degrees of difficulty per rope, and a bouldering or horizontal traverse wall. Advanced climbers can take advantage of the wall's natural-looking granite for the ultimate texture climb.
SBCC offers a full array of classes, supervised drop-in sessions, camps and programs for people of all skill levels to develop or improve their rock-climbing skills. The wall is also available to rent for parties, team-building and other celebration events.
All climbers must have a signed climbing wall waiver on file at SBCC. Youth waivers must be signed by parent or legal guardian.
Belayed Climb Session - During these scheduled times there will be trained staff to belay all individuals who wish to climb in a safe and encouraging atmosphere. All equipment is provided. Minimum age is 4 years.
Open Climb Session - Valid SBCC Belay Cards are required in order to climb The Crag during Open Climb Sessions. Bouldering is not permitted. Cardholders may only belay other adults with valid SBCC Belay Cards or their own legal children. $6 (residents) and $7.50 (non-residents).
Climb Passes - These passes save you money and never expire. Passes can be used for either Belayed Climb or Open Climb Sessions.
SBCC Belay Card - Individuals, 18 years and older, interested in obtaining a SBCC Belay Card can be tested during regularly scheduled Belayed Climb Sessions to ensure they are current and effective in belaying skills. Tests are given a minimum of one week after taking the Rock Climbing 101 class. Cardholders are allowed to belay other adult SBCC Belay Cardholders or their own legal children during any climb session. Minimum age is 18 years. $12 (Bellevue residents) and $15 (non-residents).
