Practice Time changed to 8:00pm-10:00 pm for Fall quarter

Due to changes of building hour of operations at the AOERC, Monday practice time at the climbing wall is now from 8:00pm - 10:00pm for the remainder of Fall Quarter. We're working with the gym's management to hopefully extend hours to 10:30pm, but we will update here with any developments.

2021-2022 Member Registration is LIVE! Sign up now! + Practices resume next Monday 9/20

2021-2022 Membership:

  • Being a SAC member gives you access to Yosemite campsites (campsites starting again in winter 2022), subsidized Common Adventure trips, IKON Pass discounts, Monday night practices at the Stanford climbing wall, gear pro-deals, member listserv, fun film screenings and socials.

  • Head to the Get Involved tab to register! Signing up is super easy for both current and prospective members who are a part of the Stanford community.

  • If you are a current SAC member, renew your membership by Friday, October 1 to ensure you stay on the roster without interruption.

Monday Night Practices:

  • Starting next Monday, September 20, we are resuming practices every Monday night from 9-11pm at the AOERC climbing wall! The first practice will be open to both registered members and those interested in joining SAC. After this, you’ll need to be on the official roster.

  • In case you’ve forgotten what practices are… they’re a great time to unplug from life, and come climb with your fellow SAC teammates! Find a new climbing partner, get that beta you’ve been gunning for, send your gym project, plan a trip.

  • In order to rope climb, you’ll need to go through the standard belay check at the Stanford gym. We recommend getting this ahead of time (no appointment needed) to avoid a long line at practice. We’re still waiting to hear when lead checks will resume, hang tight.


The Stanford Climbing Wall is closed 8/28 – 9/19 due to SPOT (Stanford Pre-Orientation Trips).

The wall will re-open Monday 9/20... just in time for the first SAC practice of the year (9-11pm)!
