No experience necessary
You don’t need to have climbed before, even at an indoor climbing gym. However if you have, then you will have already learned to “belay” a partner – this skill will help, as we use a similar skill in the outdoors. Either way, your guide will cover these basics with you before you start.
All safety equipment provided
Melbourne Climbing School has all the essential safety equipment (and then some) to keep you and your loved ones super safe while climbing on outdoor rock. You will only need to bring suitable clothing and footwear for light hiking, and your own lunch and water for the day (and a camera!).
A day tailored to you
Age, gender, height, fitness and strength are all things that have no impact whatsoever on whether you can rock climb. Your race or religion make no difference of course, and you may be surprised to hear that even physical disability is not always a barrier. We will plan the day based on you – what you have done before (if anything), your preferences for location and your comfort with heights. Do you want to challenge yourself on shorter top-rope climbs, or test your head space on long adventure routes? Even if you are super nervous about climbing in general, we have you covered.
Always something new
The great thing about outdoor rock climbing is that two days are never the same. So whether it is your first day with a guide or your hundredth – there is always a new rock to challenge you!
Experience beautiful rock formations close to Melbourne and challenge yourself to climb above the trees, where you can look out at the incredible panoramas. You can’t get these views from any tourist viewing platform! And the best bit? Once you have been to one area, there are plenty of others, all offering a unique blend of flora and fauna, rock type and incredible views.
If you have Aaron as your guide, he also happens to be a great photographer! So bring along your own camera or let him use his – he’s bound to get the perfect shot for you to show your friends!
