Interactive Adventures: Red Barn Climbing Gym
Red Barn Climbing (RBC) is RIT's indoor rock climbing gym, located in the Interactive Adventures Red Barn on the west end of campus. RBC is regarded by many as the premier rock climbing gym in Western New York and among the best in the Northeast.
RBC is open on weekday evenings and afternoons on weekends when RIT class is in session. During this time most climbing walls are open and available to visitors, however some areas may be closed based on current weather conditions.
The Red Barn is a 100 year old "Wells" style dairy barn that still lacks many modern amenities such as heat and plumbing. Please dress based on the outside temperature. There is a "Port-A-John" located in the main parking lot that is available for all visitors.
The Red Barn is primarily a bouldering gym, which is a type of rope-less rock climbing where participants fall onto padded surfaces. There is also a 32 foot tall top-roping wall used primarily for instructional purposes, but that is available to visitors during warm-weather months.
No prior climbing experience is needed. All visitors must be 18 years of age or older, or a registered RIT student.
