IS IT YOUR FIRST TIME VISITING US?
Welcome to Climb West Melbourne!
Here at Climb West Melbourne, the minimum age to Climb is 10.
There are a few steps you will need to take when you arrive.
As you haven’t been to our facility before, you will need to complete the legal waiver and watch the Climb West Melbourne Safety Induction Video. Please make sure to complete this online before you arrive for your session.
You are now all set to freely climb the walls!
If at any time you need help sending a project, feel free to come and chat to one of our staff. They will be more than happy to help solve a project with you!
