Parental supervision is required at all times to ensure your child’s safety, whether they are climbing or spectating.  Tuition is available through our Kids Club or School Holiday Program.

What are the benefits of rock climbing?

Rock climbing provides a complete body workout combining both cardio and muscular exercise.  Regular climbing will help to lose weight, increase muscle tone and body flexibility as well as improve your cardiovascular system.  It is also a great way to meet new people and build friendships.

I have never climbed before. Are beginners welcome?

Yes!  Many of our climbers are beginners. On arrival our instructors will take you through an induction and spend the time necessary with you to ensure you learn the basic skills and gain confidence to continue unsupervised. There are always instructors available on the floor should you require any help or if you have any questions. First time visitors check out our ‘first timers’ information

Can I climb by myself?

Yes you can!  Head to the bouldering wall and climb our huge 5.5m high wall with more than 25 meter of surface including a boulder cave.   Large thick safety mats line the floor.  We can also help you find a climbing partner (see below). 

Is rock climbing safe?

Indoor rock climbing does not make the list for adrenaline sports and with all the best practices in place it is considered a low injury risk and carries a good safety profile.  City Summit enforces safe practices within the climbing gym to minimise risk and injury. 

Can you help me find a climbing partner?

There are always people of varying abilities looking for someone to climb with.  We encourage people to join our facebook group or come to a social night at the centre.  Check out our facebook page or give us a call.  Tuesday and Thursday nights are generally the busiest so we can always try to pair you up with someone if you drop in.

If you are serious about a challenge, try the Dreamcatcher, a grade 35 climb based on Cacodemon Boulder in Squamish, BC.

How often do you change the routes and problems?

We want our climbers to be continually challenged which is why we have a schedule in place for the ongoing changes to our walls.  We have a great team of route setters who create challenging climbs for various levels of climbers and we love to mix up the combination of wall faces, inclines, holds and volumes to keep you challenged.
