WHAT IS 'CLIMB TIME'?

‘Climb Time’ is an exciting new way to experience indoor rock climbing! Operated with ‘Automatic’ belays means no one is required to do the rope work which means parents can either relax as the kids climb or even join in them selves! ‘Climb Time’ also includes our caving challenge and ‘Spider Mountain’ so there is heaps to keep everyone busy!

‘Climb Time’ sessions run every hour on the hour during trading hours on weekends, week nights and school holidays! Check availability and Book Online

HOW DO I GO ABOUT LEAD CLIMBING AT BAYSIDE FOR THE FIRST TIME?

As long as you are a proficient lead climber, you can visit our bookings page and book in for a time that suits you.

Due to safety reasons, not everyone passes their lead test on the first time. Many people have bad habits that take some time to correct.

Never lead before? Thats fine, we run Learn To Lead Courses to show you everything involved (Also in our bookings page).

Please Note: If your really keen for a lead check, your best bet is to book in… No stress if you cant lead on your first visit, we have HEAPS to challenge you elsewhere!
