Do you find one of the most rewarding times is when you try something over and over, then you finally achieve it? Rock climbing is a great way to experience that. You see the route, you try it - but you don't quite make it. A few times later, you're at the top! It's an extremely rewarding experience to know that you can do it.
Vertical Endeavors is one of the largest indoor rock climbing facilities in the world (that's pretty big!) and they can accommodate all levels of experience. For those just starting out, you will be given a full induction and explanation of how to climb properly, and how to look after your friends that are climbing (very important!)
In addition to climbing with your friends, there are a number of special events and programs for you to participate in throughout the year. Make sure you keep checking back!
If you have mastered the indoor climbs and want to try your hand with the much more challenging outdoor climbs, then just ask! You can join one of the 4 or 6 hour outdoor tours which get you out into nature and putting into practice all those techniques you learnt indoors!
Fancy climbing over summer? They have fun summer camps to be a part of and really hone your skills, and parents - don’t think you have any excuse not to join too! They hold adult climbing classes so you can try and keep up with the kids!
Rock climbing is a full body workout so it's a great way for the whole family to stay active, learn techniques of balance and concentration, and just have a lot of fun!
