Climbing Walls
Everyone is welcome to climb at the UMD climbing walls.
Equipment is provided and instructors are always on hand to
show you what to do. Beginners through advanced climbers are
welcome. See you at the Wall!

Try ice climbing moves indoors on our simulated ice panels at the North Shore Wall. Stop by during our open climbing hours on weekdays 4-8 pm to swing an ice axe and get the feeling of real frozen waterfalls without the cold temps!

North Shore Wall
The North Shore Wall has a prominent place in the Sports and
Health Center Fitness Area. The Wall extends through two
stories and into a skylight. Features include top rope climbing,
lead-climbing routes, realistic hand cracks and flake systems, a
rappel ledge and a great bouldering area.

The Inland Wall
The Inland Wall, adjacent to the ice rink/tennis courts has set
open hours as well (see below). Climbers love the Inland Wall’s
Bouldering Cave and realistic roped terrain. Group sessions,
skill clinics and special events are also scheduled at the Inland
Wall.
