The Climbing Gym was opened to the public on October 10, 1994, the culmination of a decade-long effort by members of the Dartmouth Mountaineering Club and the Outdoor Programs Office to bring a world-class indoor climbing facility to Dartmouth. Many students, faculty and alumnae/i participated in the design and construction of the gym. The gym is a twenty-three foot tall bouldering cave where climbers of every skill level can practice their skills. Monitors from the DMC assist climbers and ensure safe climbing techniques. The Leadership and Training Center was opened in 2002. The Center adds lead climbing and belay stances for anchoring and rapelling to the gym's offerings, as well as equipment for strength training and a library of periodicals and instructional videos. The Climbing Gym and the Leadership and Training Center are located in the basement of the Maxwell residence hall. They are open to the public 5:00 to 11:00 pm, Sunday through Friday (and at other times by appointment). It is open to all students, faculty, and employees, as well as to members of the community who are over the age of eighteen and members of the Dartmouth Outing Club.
