The Canyon Rock Climbing Room

Rock Climbing at SMC

Undoubtedly, the towering feature of the Student Activity Center on Southwestern Michigan College’s Dowagiac campus is the 3,500-square-foot rock climbing room called The Canyon.

Approaching the room from the long hall, you feel as if you are walking into a large crevice between two crags. The Canyon has a 35-foot vertical wall with several shorter walls, as well as a 12-foot bouldering wall.

The Canyon accommodates all three types of indoor climbing: top-roping, bouldering, and lead climbing.

The 40+ vertical routes and 20 bouldering options are changed regularly, offering new climbs and challenges throughout the year.
