Climbing Wall

Climbing Wall

Seahawk Adventures is now open for climbing! We are offering 50 and 70 minute climbing times based on reservation. See below for details!


The UNCW Student Recreation Center climbing wall stands approximately 28 feet high and provides over 1900 square feet of climbing surface. Routes range in difficulty from "no sweat" slab climbing to an overhanging arete section. The wall is intended for those with no experience to advanced climbers.
