Group Rentals and Teambuilding

Group Rentals and Teambuilding

Group rentals  are available for Temple University Students and Staff. External participants are not permitted to use the Climbing Wall. Reservations must be made at least 14 days in advance.

There are two options for renting the wall: Climbing parties and teambuilding activities. These programs  provide opportunities for groups to develop trust, build confidence and increase individual and group awareness through climbing. Rock climbing demands a high level of communication, personal responsibility and teamwork. While individual efforts contribute, it is always the way a group works together that determines how successful they will be.

These programs provide unique initiative opportunities to the Temple University Community.
