Climbing Wall

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.


Learn to Climb

These one hour, instructor led workshops are appropriate for beginners or as a refresher course. The course will go over how to use equipment along with an introduction to belaying and basic climbing techniques. Please limit yourself to one Learn to Climb Workshop and then join the drop-in times. All equipment and shoes will be provided. Please note that Learn to Climb and Drop-in Climb take place simultaneously. Individuals who have already taken the Learn to Climb workshop may drop-in to any of the time slots for a fee of $2. Each time slot will be staffed with two instructors: one to focus on the Learn to Climb portion and another to monitor those for Drop-In.
