Indoor Climbing Walls


The North Shore Wall is featured prominently in the Sports and Health Center. Extending two stories into a skylight, the wall is fully sport-lead capable. Equipped with a simulated ice climbing route, multiple crack systems, a rappel ledge and a great bouldering area, the North Shore Wall offers a wide variety of climbing options. We collect a wide variety of climbing tools for participants to grow their climbing knowledge and experience. Ask us for the latest!

Free Bouldering

Focusing on core strength, balance and coordination, bouldering is a great addition to any work out. Add a challenge to your everyday work out with a bouldering routine. Anyone with a facility or climbing pass may boulder at no additional cost during regular facility hours other than open climbing hours. During open climbing hours you must have a climbing pass to boulder or climb. Please keep your feet below the four-foot high red line.


Tucked on the far side of the ice rink/tennis courts, the inland wall simulates climbing on actual rock far more closely than most modern climbing walls. Realistic flakes, ledges, cracks will take you to the top of this historically significant climbing wall. The bouldering cave attached to the Inland Wall rounds out a spectacular array of possibilities for climbing on campus at UMD.
