Outdoor Education: Red Barn Climbing

The Red Barn is home to one of the top collegiate indoor rock climbing facilities in the country. RBC is a bouldering-only gym, where climbs are shorter and falls are protected with padding. Climbing routes are set and maintained to accommodate all abilities and skill levels, from beginner to expert. All non-RIT visitors must be 18 years of age or older.

The Red Barn is a 100 year old "Wells" style dairy barn that 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.

RBC is open when RIT semester classes are in session and closed during exam weeks and breaks.

Red Barn telephone: (585) 292-6571
