It’s a law of nature—international rescue and relief students like to climb. It’s a vital part of their summer survival and search and rescue training in Colorado. But on a campus hundreds of miles from the nearest mountain, these outdoor adventure seekers don’t nd many places to practice.
Now, nestled under the balcony in the Don Love Building Atrium, a glassed-in bouldering cave beckons climbers to practice a variety of dif cult maneuvers. Instead of pushing climbers to ascend 20 to 30 feet into the air, the bouldering cave presents lateral climbing challenges with a variety of routes around several angled walls and along the eight- foot ceiling.
This bouldering cave—which allows students to exercise, practice their skills and have fun together even in winter months—has been made possible by generous
gifts from donors like you.Thank you for your commitment to helping make Union College a great experience for all our students.
