Climbing Wall

Reach new heights

The University of Maryland 's 55-foot tall freestanding climbing wall is one of the tallest on the East Coast. Come experience physical and social wellness by exercising in a new environment and meeting new people.

Access to the climbing wall and bouldering grotto is included with a RecWell membership. Simply check in with your university ID or RecWell membership card at the Adventure Program, and we'll get you climbing right away regardless of any previous climbing experience.

We have a variety of climbing options for all skill levels. Check out our current climbing routes and bouldering problems.

Location
The RecWell Climbing Wall is located on North Campus behind the ERC and accessed by walking down the steps outside between the ERC and the Outdoor Aquatic Center.

Bicycle racks are provided around the corner from the climbing wall facility.  Bikes may not be locked to the fence.
