Outdoor Education: Red Barn Climbing

Red Barn Climbing is closed until further notice.

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.

Red Barn telephone: (585) 475-7050


RBC is open when RIT semester and summer classes are in session. It is closed during semester breaks and finals weeks. Please refer to the RIT academic calendar website or the Red Barn Climbing gym Facebook page for additional information on open hours.
