From Rendering to Reality

Texas A&M University – Commerce

Commerce, TX

Commonly referred to as “The Rock,” the climbing facility at Texas A&M University – Commerce is the focal point of the Morris Recreation Center and offers climbing for all levels of climbers.




The school’s Outdoor Adventure program operates with an educational philosophy, which required great attention to the nuances of the facility and the climbing wall features. The climbing area includes a 45’ tower and  over 80 linear feet of bouldering at 13 feet high. The combination allows for maximum programming opportunities by having a  versatile climbing wall design. The climbing tower is equipped for top rope, lead climbing, and auto belays to meet the long-term programming needs of the university.

Product Used: High Performance
Known as the “routesetter’s canvas,” our seamless High Performance climbing wall system is the product of choice for state-of-the-art climbing facilities.

Experienced climbing wall operators know the key to keeping their climbers enthusiastic is creative and ever-changing routes. High Performance walls are thoughtfully designed to highlight this aspect of operations. They provide a beautiful and functional “blank canvas” that can accommodate features like arches, overhangs, cracks and pinnacles or simply sweeping expanses that showcase your routes.

High Performance climbing wall systems are made of a thick, cementitious texture applied over sheets of interlocking OSB, a proven method of climbing wall construction. Supported by a steel framing system, the walls are extremely durable and can withstand a high volume of use. A t-nut density of at least 2 per sq ft and planar surfaces allow you to place more and bigger holds, allowing for the ultimate flexibility in routesetting.
