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.
NOTE! The Inland Wall & Bouldering Cave are temporarily closed due to COVID-19 safety protocols.
