Featured amenities at the Maverick Pavilion

The breathtaking climbing space boasts a 38-foot wall with 2,400 square feet of climbing area. It features a large bouldering area, seven top rope systems and four auto-belay systems for climbers without belaying partners. There is also a climbing training area that includes hangboards, to help with finger strength; campus boards, which a climber ascends using only their hands; and system boards, which help climbers-in-training focus on particular climbing positions.

Free beginner climbing orientations are available every day of the week to teach the novice climber proper knots and belay techniques. Other classes to be offered throughout the semester, in cooperation with the Outdoor Program, include climbing movement, rappelling, rope rescue, basic lead climbing and lead belaying, multi-pitch climbing and more.

Climbing Wall access is for students only. All climbing equipment is available at the front desk and can be rented for no charge with a MAVcard. The bouldering and training areas will be open during normal Maverick Pavilion hours; top rope climbing hours are more limited.

The Cycling Training Room is used for our Club Sport Team.  For information on this, please contact coaches Brian Flaherty ( or Patric Rostel (
