Climb Base5 FAQ's

I want to try climbing but not sure what class to take?

There are two options. The first is to take our Introduction to Indoor Climbing Course. This very popular class is excellent for someone who is interested in learning how to set up their own climbing system and bring a climbing partner up and down the walls. After the class, you will have enough knowledge to continue coming back in to the climbing gym to try more exciting climbs.

The second choice to book a fun climbing session. This choice is very popular for birthday parties, office get together or even first dates! The gym staff will take care of all the safety issues for you. You just need to come with a big smile and enjoy yourself.

I want to book an Introduction Course but I am not very fit and afraid I can't keep up with the class.

Don't worry. People of all ages, sizes and shapes take our very popular beginner class. It's a great way to meet some new people, get in shape and take up a new challenge. There are lots of different types of climbing terrain in our gym and we are sure we can find something that is just perfect for you!

I am afraid of heights. Is that going to be an issue?

It can be. A lot of people take a beginner class to conquer a personal fear of heights. Our instructors are great at recognizing your concerns and working through the climbs in small steps. You won't know how strong you can be until you try it!

I have booked a fun climbing session or Introduction Course but I am not sure what to wear or what to bring?

Wear something comfortable that you can move around in. Climbers will commonly wear form fitting clothing so that they move on the wall easily. T-shirt, shorts, sweat pants, yoga outfits will all work just fine.

I have a 5 year-old child. Is that too young to try climbing?

No, not at all. Just keep in mind that not all children have the same strength or size. Some times they are just a little too small to have a good time climbing the wall and other times, you just can't tear them away from all the fun they are having. If you are not sure, the best thing to do is to bring your child down to the gym and pay a small fee just to try the gym out. Don't book a climbing party for your child until you are sure your little bundle of joy would enjoy the climbs.
