The vertical world is calling but not sure where to start? Keen to try a new sport, climbing which is not all about strength could be what you are looking for!
South East Queensland has a vibrant climbing community and a spectacular variety of vertical terrain, but it can be hard to get your foot in the door. At Pinnacle Sports, we have the solution – a 4 week climbing course designed to give you a big head start on your climbing career! Join us for 6 climbing sessions at 3 different venues, offering the opportunity to hone your technique in a variety of environments.
This Womens Only Climbing Course, is being run by Peta Barrett who has over 20 years climbing experience both in Australia and overseas. She’ll select the best climbs for your ability and provide tips and coaching on efficient body movement and technique. Our courses are positive, encouraging, heaps of fun, and of course, they’re a great way to get social and meet other climbers.
Welcome to the Brisbane climbing scene!
Your awesome guide Peta is highly trained, fully accredited, and totally stoked! We'll provide you with all the gear you’ll need - harness, helmet, climbing shoes, and all other safety equipment. All you’ll need is a water bottle and snacks, appropriate clothing, and enclosed shoes for getting around the crag.
Peta will also take care of all the ropes and rigging, so you can leave the technical stuff to her. That said, if you’re interested in learning how to construct your own climbing and abseiling anchors, our 2-day Top Rope Course is the ideal next step.
This course comprises of 6 sessions running in three locations, each with their own distinct environment:
Kangaroo Point Cliffs 6-9pm
These historic cliffs are an unmistakable landmark and a true Brisbane icon. Affectionately known as KP to climbers, this truly unique urban crag boasts hundreds of routes that cater to all levels of ability. Best of all, giant floodlights mean you can climb day or night at any time of the year!
Indoor Climbing Gym 6-9pm
For those new to the sport, right through to seasoned veterans, the climbing gym has proved a powerful training tool in the modern climber’s arsenal. The controlled indoor environment makes it an ideal place for us to work on the finer points of climbing technique - rain, hail or shine!
Mt Ngungun, Glasshouse Mountains 8am to 12 noon
Located 60 minutes north of Brisbane, the Glasshouse Mountains are another iconic climbing venue. Deservedly popular, Mt Ngungun features routes for climbers of all stripes - from short, punchy routes nestled deep among the ferns, to soaring, atmospheric cracks with incredible views. This is true-blue Queensland climbing and an experience you won’t forget.
Can’t do a pull-up? Don’t worry – technique is much more important than strength! However, you will need a moderate level of fitness to get to the summit of Mt Ngungun, which involves approximately 45 minutes of hiking with ropes and gear in your pack.
