Check-in at the ASI Poly Escapes Rental Center each time you climb or boulder. Cal Poly students and Recreation Center members climb for free! Visitors must check-in at the Cal Poly Recreation Center Membership Services desk to obtain a guest pass.
Looking to try rock climbing, but not sure where to start? Stop by during our Introductory Hours for a brief orientation and beginner-friendly instruction with a Climbing Park Supervisor.

We provide the guidance and the gear! At the Poly Escapes Rental Center, you’ll receive a climbing harness, climbing shoes, and a wristband for your climbing session. To avoid fees, return any gear to the rental center on the same day of your visit.
