Have you ever eyed the complex ropes course at the UW-Eau Claire campus, wondering what it would be like to climb among the clouds? This summer, you can! The Environmental Adventure Center has announced its Eagle’s View Challenge Ropes Course is open to the community for the summer.

With courses soaring 30 feet in the air, this is the ideal challenge for those looking to add a unique activity to their summer schedule, get a bit of adrenaline pumping, or just have fun. 

Eagle’s View Challenge Ropes Course is located at 630 Hilltop Circle on upper campus. It is currently open Saturdays from 12pm-6pm. Community members can register for a spot in the ropes for $20 online, and students can book their time slot for $10.
