SLAQC Collab Programs

The WSU Outdoor Program exists to support folks in accessing the outdoors and outdoor recreation activities. We know that there are barriers for many folks, including marginalized groups of people. We hope that our affinity programs offer safe options for folks to be in community, learn new skills, and grow as climbers and as people. The programs on this page are run in conjuction with Salt Lake Area Queer Climbers (SLAQC). We hope to further their work in creating a supportive space for all queer people to enjoy climbing. All are welcome and please recreate respectfully! Check out our offerings below and reach out with any questions you have:
