Currently Scheduled Hours







For Staff Only

There are no regular wall hours, but the wall is typically open for at least a few hours most days. Open hours are posted by staff members, generally one week to one hour in advance. In the case of MIT physical education classes held at the wall, the wall is closed, but the closed hours are typically posted, with a clear description that the wall is generally closed (to avoid confusion and also so that staff don't try to post hours when the classes are happening).

Add your hours if you are a wall staff member!

The MIT Climbing Wall was built in 2001 by a core group of dedicated students, with help from the extended MIT community.

Since 2001 it has had many tireless wall managers, many upgrades and has undergone constant improvement in the form of new mats, a new couch, an air filter and so on.

You can find out who the current wall manager is by visiting the MITOC officers page.

You may want to read our Operating Manual (pdf) before coming to the wall.

The Climbing Wall is located on the 3rd floor of Walker Memorial, on the side facing the Charles River. The room number is 50-303. Please enter the building from Memorial Drive (on the river side, next to the Muddy Charles pub), go up 2 flights, and then go left, left. Keep the noise level down as tests are frequently given in the gym. Please do not walk through the gym during tests! We also have rental shoes available; you can use them with a kind donation of $1.

Mailing List

The climbing-wall mailing list is used for last-minute announcements of wall hours, and for announcing things like climbing wall competitions. Major events will also be sent to climbers, mitoc, and mitoc-announce as appropriate. For more information on the climbing-wall mailing list, or to add yourself, please go to the mailman page
