Tree Frogs

at Clip ‘n Climb

7-9 years
Tree Frogs is skills development focused programme, allowing participants to cross over from climbing on auto belays to top rope climbing on the rock climbing wall. Our instructor will actively encourage and teach participants entry level climbing skills, rather than just being a fun-based programme.

The programme runs for four sessions – the first four weeks of the term, and the last four weeks of the term. Children can opt to do a part or full term depending on what suits them.

Billy Goats

on the Climbing Wall

9-13 years
A great introduction to climbing.  Students will learn and develop skills in basic climbing technique and the safe belaying of others.  

This course is designed for school students (minimum 9yrs of age) who are keen to experience indoor top rope climbing in a fun, safe and controlled environment with a friendly, experienced instructor.

Participants will be assessed for a Top Rope Belay Licence towards the end of the course.  This is a prerequisite for joining the Flying Geckos Climbing Club for those under 13 years old.

Information & Timetable

* Top rope belaying
* Basic elements of climbing (holds, movement, balance, resting, etc)
* Bouldering safety
* Adventure based learning (ABL) activities and games
* Basic abseiling
* Different climbing hold types

At the end of each term if the participants who have learned the required skills are awarded a belay licence. This means that even if they are below our age limit of 13 they can still belay (under a guardian’s supervision). Normally we do not allow persons under the age of 13 to belay, so it’s a special privilege to belay under age.

Obtaining a belay licence also means that participants can progress into the Flying Geckos youth club or move into the Peak Panthers after school programme. However progressing into the Peak Panthers requires instructor permission as well as a belay licence.

Peak Panthers

on the Climbing Wall

9-13 years
Peak Panthers is a year long course broken up over the four school terms. Each term has a specific focus. Term 1 focuses on improving the participant’s climbing skills, Term 2 teaches abseiling, Term 3 focuses on lead climbing and Term 4 combines all of these skills.

You can join throughout the year, but Term 4 is a bit different, it combines skills from the previous terms and therefore requires that participants have attended at least Term 1, Term 2 or Term 3.

Peak Panthers may not be suitable for younger participants or those who have a fear of heights, we recommend attending Billy Goats as a starter course if your child hasn’t climbed before. Instructors will assess and give sign off to attend Peak Panthers once the skills have been attained from the Billy Goats course.
