indoor climbing center at MNSU Myers Field House

The Myers Field House Indoor Rock Climbing Center:

The Indoor Climbing Center at MNSU was built summer of 2012 by Nicros Climbing Wall Systems. The construction of this wall was made possible by fiscal year 2012 one-time reinvestment funding by Minnesota State University, Mankato. With much student support, administration support and community excitement, climbing is available to MNSU Students and the community on a year-round basis. Come rock climb in Mankato!

Uses:

This wall is used for student open climbing, community open climbing, MNSU academic classes (through the Human Performance Department), instructional clinics, private events, parties, youth climbing camps (in partnership with ISD-77 Community Education and other local non-profits) and during other events at the Myers Field House.

Built from Nicros WestcoastTM texturing, the textured rock appearance of this wall is made from its' composition of plywood structures covered in a special concrete based texturing. The feel and texture of this climbing wall is incredibly versitile, allowing climbers to switch up the handholds, routes and still be able to use natural features and attached handholds to climb unique routes up the wall. This is the largest indoor rock wall in Southern Minnesota!
