Rock Climbing

Climbing is a fun, challenging activity that runs throughout Terms 1, 2 and 3. It caters for all levels of climbers from novice through to national competitors. Our team of regular climbers is approximately 15 - 20. Each session at Extreme Edge is a fun training overseen by our climbing coach, Mr Doug McCauley. The aim of the trainings is to increase the level of climbing competence from each student. Lead climbing and belaying are worked toward throughout the year. Students need to get themselves to Extreme Edge for a 4:30 start, for a two-hour session overseen by a climbing coach.
