A 6m x 6m indoor climbing wall for bouldering and top-rope only. ISU's wall has some overhangs and features built in and routes from 12-25 in grade.



The ISU climbing wall now has capacity for five climbers at a time. ISU has an after school climbing activity for its students every Tuesday. The Mountain Club of Uganda runs indoor climbing here once a month on Tuesdays from 7-9pm. There are usually 15-25 people at these sessions, which are popular and often oversubscribed. A group of 10-15 on this wall is plenty. If you'd like to use this wall contact ISU directly or attend one of the MCU sessions. Club sessions should increase in frequency to meet demand, however too few volunteers exist to run more sessions. Ideally, this small wall should be open a couple evenings per week to meet demand.

View historical timeline

This is the only indoor climbing in UG as of March 2018. The wall was built around 2011 and was expanded in 2015.

There have been many other attempts by the MCU and others to expand indoor climbing in Kampala. There is a planned gym for Rubaga, which is stalled, another halted gym in Makindye and several other international schools have tried to put a gym in place. Sadly the money and/or expertise has been lacking and none of those projects have come to fruition leaving ISU with the only indoor climbing in Uganda.
