The 41-foot climbing wall is one of the highest in the region. This exciting way to exercise combines physical endurance with mental stimulation and is guaranteed to provide you with a one of a kind, full-body workout. The wall features a variety of routes to accommodate all levels of experience and with the routes changing monthly there is always a new challenge.
As a UofT student, UTSC faculty or staff member there are a variety of ways to get involved on the climbing wall, including Drop-in Climb, Learn to Climb, and our 5-week Skill Building Series program.
U of T students, staff and faculty will be able to log in to the recreation website, recreation.utoronto.ca, using their UTORid.
