Nicros Art wall! (2010) Photo contributed by Dere...


The ODU rock wall was constructed in 2009 by nicros - it is an art wall and features seven top ropes and one lead section. Being an art wall it hosts natural routes which range from 5.10 - 5.12d. Most of the routes are face climbs on overhanging terrain.

It is free to any odu student. Non students must acquire a $10 day pass and be the guest of an odu student - not to worry, if your above an 8 just stand outside the gym for a minute to find someone walking in and ask to be their guest!

Getting There 

Almost all lots on campus are free on the weekends; however if you want to climb mid week then your best bet is to park on a side street off campus and walk to the SRC (student recreation center). The approach is between 3-9 minutes

Since this is not an actual "rock wall" I'm going to move this section to the indoor, artificial wall, climbing gym section. Thanks for posting this!
