Adaptive Climbing

The mission of Duke Adaptive Climbing is to provide rock climbing opportunities to individuals with disabilities in the triangle area. Opportunities to learn to rock climb are available to ambulatory and non-ambulatory teens, adults and children ages 6 and up.

Duke Adaptive Climbing is a volunteer driven program that works to create a welcoming and fully inclusive environment to learn the sport of rock climbing. We currently offer monthly clinics at the Duke Climbing Wall, Triangle Rock Club and the Chapel Hill Community Center. We are always looking for new volunteers and participants to get involved with our program.
