Welcome to the Climbing Instructional Program at the University of Wisconsin – Eau Claire, Environmental Adventure Center. Rock climbing and associated activities are inherently dangerous and potentially life-threatening. So we have decided to create a page with the intent to help educate climbers who are new to the sport and those seasoned climbers who want to expand their climbing knowledge in an indoor and outdoor setting.

These workshops will deliver important core skills to climbers seeking to enhance their ability to construct natural and artificial anchors. It is designed to share “best practices” in the outdoor climbing industry.
