Get down to City Summit Rock Climbing Malaga for some family rock climbing action. It's a great way for the family to get active and have some fun together! City Summit conveniently located just off the Tonkin Hwy in Malaga and is open daily.
If you or your kids have never rock climbed before you don’t have to worry, each group is given instructions and details of safety precautions before commencing their rock climbing session, and the belaying technique (that’s the pulling of the ropes) is easy to pick up after a few turns under the guidance of your friendly and helpful instructor.
Keep in mind that children must be 5 years + to rock climb, and for children under 12 years an adult must be present to belay. Also children under 18, will need a parent or guardian to sign the Liability Waiver form. If you go as a family and you all want to have a turn, make sure there are at least 2 adults that can share the belaying duty. Even if you only have one belayer it’s still a lot of fun, don’t think that you get out of doing a bit of work being the belayer, it is pretty hard work!
Once you’ve received your instruction you are all ready to go! The instructor will tell you about the different levels available and how to determine what level each climb is, and make recommendations based on your skills and experience. Climbs are designed for the beginner right up to the advanced climber so there is a climb for everyone. There are not just walls to climb but there is also a vertical rope and ladder climb too. These are great as they mostly require strength, not too much thinking – so they are great fun in between wall climbs and bouldering.
Wall rock climbing and bouldering (bouldering is like wall climbing except the climbs aren’t quite as high, there is a large padded mat at the bottom and a harness is not worn) is great for testing young ones strength as well as challenging their mental abilities as they have to figure out the best path whilst maintaining a grip on the wall.
What makes City Summit Rock Climbing Perth unique is the fully catered café, with a great range of healthy food options, including a choice of delicious of freshly squeezed juices. The café is located above the gym, and from here you can walk out onto the mezzanine floor which overlooks the gym and enjoy your meal, coffee or a cool drink. There is also a couple of vending machines with cool drinks and quick snacks. The mezzanine floor is great for having a little rest and enjoying refreshments while watching other climbers at the same time – before heading back out for round 2!
