Join Rec. Programs Monday, Dec. 3rd from 2-4, as we set up the first 5ft section of our future ice wall!

The ice wall will be located on the back outside wall of the Moseley Sports Center.

We will have a fire, hot drinks, and cookies!


  1. Just curious how this project is coming along. Do you need assistance? After this week I will have time to offer. I’m very excited about this! Also, some of my firends from UAA, or who have graduated from other schools, were curious to know if they would be able to climb it, and what the cost would be for them?

    Thank you,
    Dustin Ryan

      Dustin, thank you for your interest! We also are very excited to be offering ice climbing on our campus this year! We have the first bracket mounted and will be getting the rest of the first 5 ft section completed today! If you were hoping to be able to help come by the sports center and talk to Marc or myself about how you could be involved in the process. As it will be our first year running an ice wall, it will only be open to the APU community (students, staff, faculty, and alumni). If the risk management and the operation of the wall goes well (as we are expecting it to!), it is possible that we may open it up to general public next year. There will be hours throughout the week that the ice wall will be open for use, if you can’t make it those times, you could schedule a time through Rec. Programs to climb outside of our general operating hours.
