Special Events

  • Black Light Climb

    Experience rock climbing like you never have before! Registrants will have the opportunity to enjoy an empty SFC lit only by blacklights, illuminating themselves and our climbing wall in glow-in-the-dark and neon designs. Top rope and bouldering are available, accompanied by a soundtrack designed to enhance your climbing experience!

    Adaptive climbing is provided by request and at several scheduled events each year. Adaptive climbing provides opportunities for individuals with disabilities to climb the indoor wall. Students can contact Student Access & Accommodation Services for adaptive climbing needs. Contact with any questions.
