Popped in for the first time with the kids. Very friendly and helpful staff the entire time we were there. Looks like the place is well used by the locals and whilst we were there for 2 1/2hrs a broad range of visitors came in from other families to what appeared to be very experienced climbers tackling the more challenging walls. Clean bright and airy, the warm up area for the kids upstairs was a great way to build their confidence in getting ready to be harnessed. The team even had a small harness for the youngest one (4 1/2yrs) who also had a climb. With a very relaxed atmosphere there were walls for all levels of difficulty and no rush or pressure to move from any one wall. Great way to spend some holiday fun with the kids and build their confidence not to mention the team work. We'll definitely go back! (Bunchof5)
Being more of a mountain dweller and ice climber I was a bit stand offish about the whole gym climbing idea but was met with friendly staff who were helpful with instructions. There is a wide range of gear for hire and purchase at great prices. Plenty of walls with grades for beginners through to the very much seasoned climber. Also has a fantastic bouldering area. Highly recommended. (Maquarie A)
Love this place! Super friendly staff, always someone to climb with/ willing to belay. Huge boulder area and a decent range of easy to brutal climbs. Free parking too! 🙂 (Douglas H)

We have all done one of these, cmon be honest, which are you guilty of?
We are still closed for the moment, fingers crossed for and opening sometime soon in June. We have not been idle, the bouldering area has had a complete re-set and we are working our way through the roped area with new routes.
