2016 in Review

Hello to all
2016 has been another year, a year that has been a bit rubbish for many reasons, but a year that Climbing and The Rock Adventure Centre has enjoyed immensely with great success. We have had a fantastic year introducing new people to terrific vertical world of rock climbing with a huge amount making it there new sport. The offshoot of this is, if you find yourself without a belay, there is always a great person around to lend a hand, give you a catch, or even just some beta on that tricky climb you’ve been working on.
We have also have helped well over 50 kids celebrate their Birthdays with us, at 10 children minimum per birthday, that’s over 500 kids having the time of their lives at The Rock. This is always an exiting time for a kid and we love to share in their excitement and give them a party they will be talking about and sharing with their friends until the next one.Birthday Parties

Our school trips are always popular and after running them for 15 years, both indoor and outdoor, we are highly skilled and meeting and exceeding teachers and students needs and expectations with cries of “I’m coming back here on the weekend” usually heard on the way out. With our outdoor experiences it is even more important to get young people outside to experience not only the climbing, but just the outdoors itself, so they can connect outside and appreciate it more.

Climb-it Club and Team Rock are still a fantastic way to get Kids started on an alternative to normal team sports and climbing is a great way to teach responsibility, strength and to get them to expand their horizons and their limits. We have had some of our kids competing this year as well, at both a local and State level with some great success stories as well.

Finally i want to thank everyone who has come into, climbed or supported The Rock in whatever way you have. It means a lot to us that we can still get people in and psyched for climbing, or just to be able to tick something off their list both Indoors and Outdoors as well. If you loved us this year, wait until you see what we have in store in 2017. New sessions, new wall, holds and more.

Cheers From The Rock
