Come climb with us! Reservations are no longer needed. Visit us during our operating hours.

Housing two climbing walls, Campus Rec offers around 5,000 square feet of climbing as well as a bouldering wall and cave. With highly trained climbing staff, the walls are safe and easy to access, even for those who have never climbed before.

Anyone wishing to climb at the UNC Climbing Walls must have a current UNC One Card with a Campus Recreation membership and they must fill out a Climbing Wall Waiver. Currently, all certification/orientation and rental gear fees are waived, so come on in and enjoy the wonderful world of climbing for free! If you’re interested in learning the basics of climbing, check out our events page to see if we have upcoming classes or ask our staff at the climbing wall.

To visit the climbing wall, walk-in during our operating hours.


In addition to indoor climbing, the climbing program at UNC is also dedicated to outdoor rock climbing and offers many great opportunities to get outside and learn the fundamentals. We typically offer several rock climbing trips and clinics at the wall where we teach everything from basic belay technique to traditional multi-pitch climbing and everything in between.

  • Check out our events page for upcoming special events like outdoor expeditions!

Experienced belayers may take a Belay Test and will be allowed to belay if they pass the test. Otherwise, the climbing wall staff will be happy to belay you and instruct you on the use of our autobelay stations in our Bouldering/Autobelay Orientation.
