Climb West Melbourne
OUR Frequently Asked Questions
What is Bouldering?
Bouldering is a form of rock climbing where a person will climb no higher than 4.5m without the aid of ropes.
Here at Climb West, you will always climb with safety mats beneath you.
Can I bring kids?
Due to the nature of all activities within our centre, here at Climb West Melbourne we have a MINIMUM AGE of 10 to use our facilities.
All climbers under the age of 16 must be supervised by a parent or legal guardian.
All climbers under the age of 18 must have their legal waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian.
Can anyone do it?
Yes, absolutely! Whether you are experienced or trying Bouldering for the first time, our incredible setting team aims to create exciting, thought-provoking and challenging Boulder Problems for climbers of all abilities.
Climb West Melbourne is a friendly, fun and safe environment in which to exercise, socialise, and gain new climbing skills. We encourage people of all skill levels and abilities to give Bouldering a go!
What do I need to bring?
It is best to climb in comfortable sportswear, similar to what you might wear to a sports gym.
Climbing shoes are compulsory, so if you don’t have your own, you will have to hire a pair. This can be done easily on arrival at reception. If you do hire a pair, you must wear them with socks.
Bring with you a water bottle to keep you hydrated and a change of clothes/towel if you would like to use our onsite shower and changing rooms.
What are your opening hours?
We are open Monday – Sunday!
Have a look at our Hours/Location page for more details.
Do I need to book?
No need to book in advance. You are welcome to drop in at anytime, and stay for as long as you’d like. You can even leave and come back in the same day!
As you haven’t been to our facility before, you will need to complete the legal waiver. You can save time on the day, by already completing this online before you arrive.

Can I bring my dog with me?
Our Dog Policy outlines our rules for bringing, caring for and supervising Dogs at Climb West Melbourne. All Dog owners who wish to bring their Dog within our premises MUST read and agree to follow our Pet Policy upon entering the premises with their Dog.
We believe that Dogs can create a friendlier and happier environment. They’re fun, playful and can have a positive influence on our performance and state of well-being. We allow our customers and employees to have their Dogs at Climb West Melbourne when they wish.
However, we want to make sure that they will not disrupt our operations, damage properties or cause medical issues to any person or other animal within our premises. We expect everyone to read and respect this policy. If a Dog owner fails to comply with this policy, the Dog will be prohibited from Climb West Melbourne. They will also be responsible for any expenses and cleaning resulting from their Dog’s behaviour. This policy refers to all employees, visitors, contractors and consultants and applies to any space our company owns.
*Assistance animals always welcome.
1. Dogs must be on lead at all times.
2. Dogs must stay off our black safety mats at all times.
3. Dogs must behave appropriately at all times – pet owners are solely responsible for their pet’s behaviour and well-being.
4. Dogs must be clean, properly vaccinated and free of parasites.
5. Only Dogs that are well-trained and not potentially dangerous or unpleasant are allowed within the premises. Any other animal other than a Dog is prohibited.
6. Owners must leave sick Dogs at home.
7. Owners must clean up after their Dog.
8. Owners must make sure that their Dog does not make a mess, fight with other Dogs, wander in prohibited places, endanger themselves or others, damage company, employee or visitor property, annoy any person within the premises (e.g. barking consistently)
9. Owners must respect the personal space of others and remove their Dog from the premises if asked.
