Climbing Wall



The UCT bouldering wall is located in the UCT gym complex on lower campus. It is open to all MSC members and MCSA members. 

The climbing wall is at lower campus in the UCT gym, which is situated in the building between Graca Machel Res and Kopano Res. It is right next to the UCT gym and swimming pool. The access to the climbing wall does not give you access to the UCT gym. The hours for the climbing wall are:

Monday – Friday: 06:00 – 21:00 Saturday – Sunday: 08:00 – 19:00 Holidays – 08:00 – 19:00


Climbing shoes are available for hire from the gear room, but it is possible (though not easy) to climb in normal shoes. Please no barefoot climbing.

There is usually a club bouldering evening during the week where an experienced climber from the club will be there to provide some tips. Keep an eye on the weekly announcements on Vula for when these events are happening.
