Newcastle Climbing Centre welcomes everyone whether you are a novice who wants to gain experience and develop skills or a dedicated rock athlete looking to push your limits. We provide an environment that caters for all abilities and offers the best indoor climbing experience.

No climbing experience?

We offer a range of introductory courses from a one hour, “taster” session to a complete indoor climbing course where you will learn all you need to safely make the best use of the climbing walls. All courses are with a qualified instructor and all equipment will be provided.

Once you have completed one of our courses you will be able to climb unsupervised in the future, provided that the instructor expresses no safety concerns.

You may also learn to climb under the supervision of an experienced friend who is a registered climber.

Unsupervised climbing

Registered adult climbers may climb unsupervised at the Centre. A registered climber can supervise up to two novice climbers per session.
