    IS IT YOUR FIRST TIME VISITING US?

    Welcome to Climb West Melbourne! 

    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! 

    Here at Climb West Melbourne, the minimum age to Climb is 10

    If you are between 10 to 16 years of age, your parent or legal guardian must supervise you at all times whilst you are within our gym. 
     
    All climbers under the age of 18 must also have the legal waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian.

    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.

    Click on the tab below on this page to complete your digital waiver!
     
    Climbing shoes are required. If you do not have your own pair of climbing shoes, don’t worry we have plenty for hire. 
    You may also need some chalk to help you send the routes. Again this is something we have for hire at our facility.
     
    Once the above is all sorted, when you arrive at the gym, a staff member will take you through a mandatory practice safety fall.
     
    Staff will also brief you on the different types of boulders and training walls we have on offer. You will also be guided through the grading system to gain an understanding of the different levels of each coloured route.
    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!
