We have everything you need here, just wear something comfortable that isn’t too baggy or too short. This is not a class, but the best way to experience what climbing at Trinity Sport is all about! The session will last 1 hour.

Open Climb

Any climber with a valid Trinity Sport climbing licence may use the climbing wall, subject to availability. A Trinity Sport Climbing licence must be produced to book onto the wall. We operate a “No Licence – No Climb” policy.

Experienced Climbers

Experienced climbers ages 17+ are welcome to come and climb subject to availability. During your first visit you will need complete our competency test. Once you’re certified you will be issued a climbing licence which will allow you access to climb whenever the wall is open, just grab a partner for some top rope.

If you don’t have a climbing partner, come along to our supervised Social Climb every Friday from 18.00 – 20.00 it’s the best place to meet other climbers in the community and hopefully make some friends you could climb with regularly. Contact Michelle to book a competency test.
