If you are just starting out as a climber, getting back into climbing after a long break, or simply want a bit of help improving your climbing, our Climbing 101 course is for you.

Running over four weeks, the course covers:

  • Safety and gear use
  • Communication
  • Training tips
  • Climbing techniques.

In a small and social group, our experienced coaches provide you with knowledge and tools to improve your climbing.


Both our Adamstown and West Gosford facilities regularly run these courses.


Once a week for four weeks, usually 6.00-7.30PM on a weeknight. Contact us by phone (02 40234743 – Newcastle or 02 43392487 – Gosford) or email to find out our upcoming dates.


$180 for the four week course ($80 for members). This includes your entry fee, gear hire and expert tuition.


Do I need to come with a partner?

No. As well as being a great way to improve your climbing, this course is also a great way to meet new climbing friends!

Do I need to be fit?

No. We have climbs suitable for all levels of ability.

What if I’m already an awesome climber?

In that case, our training squad might be just what you are looking for.

Is it suitable for kids?

Kids are most welcome to take part in the course, but our Youth Clinics cover similar material and are likely to be more suitable.
