The course includes; how to tie a figure eight follow through knot, and correct procedures to belay and how to do a proper safety check. This course is suitable for member and non members ages 17+. All levels of climbers from beginners to experts are welcome. Once you have passed the course the licence must be produced to book onto the wall.

Taster Climb

Open to both members and non-members ages 5+, our Taster Sessions are the best way to jump start your climbing adventure with an instructor on hand to tie you in and belay, all you have to worry about is getting to the top.

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.

Private Access: From 1:1 to Group Events
We offer a range of private climbing lessons and events for ages 5+. We can arrange for anything from 1-on-1 private lessons to groups as large as 30. Available to rent for parties and team-building events all year long. Rates may vary for group events of other sizes and time lengths.
