Peak Panthers

on the Climbing Wall

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.
