Open Climbing


OPEN CLIMB: Ages 4+ (minimum of 40 lbs).  Never rock climbed before? Open Climb is the perfect opportunity for beginners or advanced climbers. No experience is necessary. All Open Climbs are staffed with certified instructors. Whether you brave the 28-foot high walls or the 18-foot high ropes course, this is an experience you will never forget. Free for YMCA Members. 

Open Climb Fees for individuals who are not members of a YMCA:  Guests will purchase a Day Pass which will include Open Climb (based on availability)
Adult Pass $14
High School Students Pass $10
Youth Pass for ages 4-13 $6
Family Pass (2 adult and minor children) $25

Sign Up for Open Climb daily at the Welcome Desk.  Sign up begins 1/2 hour prior to starting time for Oshkosh Y members. AWAY members and guests on a day pass may sign up for an open climb spot 10 minutes prior to the start of open climb.  Due to the popularity of the climbing wall, a line may form to sign up.  We can accommodate 3 climbers at one time during each 40 minute time slot. 

REACH FOR THE STARS: This program is targeting towards youth ages 4-17, helping to build self-esteem and spational awareness during open climb. Stars are given out for completing certain prerequisites within a three month period. Prizes will be awarded for receiving a certain amount of stars. Both members and non-members may participate, and open climb fees still apply. Stop by the climbing wall to learn how to earn your stars. Cost is $5 per participant.
