Climbing Challenge

Do you think you can climb the height of a mile (5,280ft)?

What about Mount McKinley, the highest point in North America (20,236 ft)?  Or Mount Everest, the tallest mountain on the face of the Earth (29,029 ft)?  We challenge you to climb the distance of a mile, 150 times to the top of our wall, and to climb some of the most popular mountain ranges on Earth at the WCU Rock Climbing Wall. 

If you climb the height of a mile you will receive the coveted "Mile High Club Member" T-shirt.  There will be many milestones for you to reach during the challenge, including climbing the distance of the highest point in Pennsylvania (Mount Davis), or Kilimanjaro (the highest point in Africa).   

Climbing Wall Monitors will log your climbs for you. Please report number of climbs with HONESTY AND INTEGRITY.

No daily maximum restrictions.


Note: Mile High challengers do not receive special considerations.


  • Staff will not be dedicated to challenger pursuits
  • Lines will not be dedicated or "hogged" for challenge climbers
