Eldorado Climbing Walls (www.eldowalls.com), the expert in rock climbing wall design and construction, announced today the completion of the highly anticipated CU Boulder climbing wall facility. They say it takes a village to raise a child, but at the University of Colorado Boulder, it took a community to build a climbing wall. CU Boulder had their students in mind when choosing their climbing wall construction company, and after extensive one-on-one interviews to find out how each company could best meet the needs of their students and programming efforts, the university chose Eldorado Climbing Walls to construct their new climbing facility.

A part of the university’s new recreation center expansion, CU Boulder boasts having a climbing wall that is the largest High Performance climbing wall of any college in the country, with over 7,000 square feet of climbing terrain. The facility offers an array of top-roping and bouldering terrain, as well as multiple crack-climbing options. A SHOTRock bouldering section mimics the exact look and strata of the nearby Colorado Flatirons.

The project was confronted during its construction with major hurdles such as the 2013 Colorado Floods, but thanks to the dedication of the Eldorado Road Crew and close communication between the Eldo team and the general contractor, the project was completed on-time, to spec, with no compromises. “It was important for us to stay on target for our completion date,” says Eldorado CEO Jerad Wells, “so we made sure that we did everything in our power to ensure communication was efficient and productive, and our on-site team put in a stellar effort to create a high quality end-product while under pressure.”

Says Levi Dexel, Outdoor Program Assistant Director at CU Boulder’s Outdoor Program, “The Boulder based Eldo crew was great! They were very professional and easy to work with and made every last-minute request a reality. The climbing gym turned out great and the CU Boulder community is very impressed with what the wall has to offer.”

The completed wall is not only aesthetically pleasing, but has a high performance capability that effectively meets the programming needs of CU Boulder’s recreation center while providing students a variety of terrain appropriate for all skill levels.
