Climbing wall

Our boulder-dedicated climbing wall is in the basement of the L.B. Gym. Climbers are challenged by the wall’s mixed terrain and are protected by large crash pads rather than ropes!

Birthday parties

Birthday parties are available year-round. Climbing parties are a great way to keep kids active while having a blast! Our climbing wall monitors facilitate climbing and games throughout the booking; light stretching and some instructional components are also included.

  • 2-hour booking= $150 +HST (recommended for children aged 7+)
  • 1-hour booking= $90 +HST

Climbing wall birthday bookings are available on most Saturdays and Sundays from 11a.m. to 1 p.m. or 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. (depending on availability).

Please contact climbbooking@unb.ca before booking a 1-hour session so that we can properly coordinate dates and times.

Note:

  • At least one parent must stay with the group at all times.
  • Shoe rentals are included in the party cost.
  • Ropes are available for birthday parties and special bookings.

No food is allowed in the climbing area. If you would like to bring in food or drinks, you must book a party room.

Party rooms

Party rooms can often be booked for treats and gifts after the climb (additional $30 +HST) which can be purchased at the time of your climbing wall booking. Party rooms are subject to room availability.

Private bookings

The climbing wall can be a great place for team or staff bonding, unique family functions or special parties. Email us at climbbooking@unb.ca to arrange a booking.
