Rock Climbing Wall
Central Michigan University's rock climbing wall provides limitless opportunities for individuals and groups interested in heart-stirring recreational experiences that promote fitness, boost self-esteem, and develop leadership skills. Located in the small gymnasium in Finch Fieldhouse (Room 112), the A-Wall is perfect for the beginning or experienced climber. The A-Wall is open to the public for regular Open Climbing sessions or may be reserved, along with the High Ropes Course​, for team building programs, climbing workshops, and more.

Team Building Activities 
Adventure Seminars offer a variety of team building initiatives to challenge and unite your group. Team building elements include: On the ground cooperative and initiative activities, including a carpet maze and all aboard. We also utilize a 12-foot initiative wall, pamper pole and Corporate ladder. Team building activities are only available for reserved groups.

Indoor High Ropes Course 
Soaring high among the rafters and above the A-Wall rock climbing wall, the indoor high ropes course provides great opportunities for team building and training experiences for groups. Reservations for the indoor high ropes course experience are currently being accepted​.​
