Staff Writer takes on Base Camp Cullowhee’s rock wall

Western Carolina University boasts the highest collegiate rock wall in the state at 50 ft high.

Base Camp Cullowhee hosts a climbing competition every year where students can win a t-shirt. This year’s competition was held in November over two evenings. About 20 people competed each night.

Beside special events, the rock wall is open most evenings and is free to all WCU community members according to their website.

Base Camp also hosts a kid’s climb two Friday afternoons per month where WCU faculty, staff and students can bring their children for some fun.
