Pullman, Washington, U.S.A.

Gym Address: 1105 Northeast North Fairway Drive, Pullman, WA 99163

What do you love most about your gym?
Though our wall may be small, we put an emphasis on rotating routes consistently. At our gym we set on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Sundays in an effort to keep routes fresh.

What is your gym’s philosophy?
Our major philosophy at our wall is that we welcome everybody. Our entire recreation facility shares this philosophy as we have a high number of students who frequent our facility. We focus on ensuring climbers of all abilities are able to participate in our programs and gym.

How would you describe your gym?
At our gym we have six rope stations and a small bouldering section. We have ample routes for climbers to climb and problems to project. During our open climb hours we have two auto belays for climbers to use at their leisure.

What is your gym’s approach to route setting?
Our climbing wall staff are all paid setters who go through a route setting clinic. Additionally we open setting to our community and allow volunteer setters to contribute to the routes on our wall. Our lead setter will supervise all setters during sets, and provide feedback to those creating new routes. We only ask that setter abide by our inclusion philosophy. This means we set easy/hard routes, dynamic/static movement, and technical/burley climbs.
