using magnetism to climb up a wall might be hard.  You would need some pretty grippy wheels and very strong magnets to acomplish this, and even then you would be limited to flat and ferromagnetic surfaces...

here are some ideas you might be able to implement instead:

http://www.observethebanana.com/2007/06/29/58/ (uses suction)

http://www.popularmechanics.com/technology/engineering/robots/4264594 (electrostatic adhesion)

you would need very light weight materials...perhaps balsa wood for the frame, a LiPo battery, perhaps (if their strong enough) miniservos etc.

what do you want your robot to do when its wandering its vertical terrain? if you just want to remote control a vehicle that drives on a wall (you have to admit that would be super wicked awesome), perhaps just buy a cheap rc toy car and mod it.
