Southern Miss provides rock climbing wall and outdoor exercise facility

HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Students at Southern Miss now have access to an indoor rock climbing wall and outdoor fitness facility.

The climbing wall stands 30 feet high by 40 feet wide, it provides nine routes for individuals to enjoy.

Department of Recreational Sports Coordinator, Sydney King said, "This is a great alternative to kind of your standard rudimentary fitness activities, it is a great full body workout, and it is also kind of experiential learning. You get to do something completely different that you would not normally do on a treadmill or even in a class."

The decision to add a climbing wall and outdoor facility came after reviewing student feedback and in the spirit of keeping Southern Miss facility competitive with other universities in the region.
