The Red Barn is a recreational facility at the Rochester Institute of Technology. Located on the west end of the RIT campus, the large, red-painted barn is the site of the university's Outdoor Education program.[1] It is perhaps best known for its rock climbing and bouldering facilities.

Rock climbing[edit]

The Red Barn's 5,000 square feet (460 m2) of climbing surface[2] is spread across a toprope wall and a top-out boulder on the first floor, and three bouldering caves in the basement. The walls' holds are regularly rearranged to create new problems.

Though the Red Barn is part of the Rochester Institute of Technology Center for Intercollegiate Athletics and Recreation department, its climbing facilities are open to the public on a limited basis, with memberships and day passes offered. Climbing shoes are also available for rent.
