Brisbane Rock Climbing - 3 Hours

Brisbane Rock Climbing - 3 Hours

What better way give yourself a buzz than to climb the 20m high cliffs in the heart of Brisbane's CBD.

The historic Kangaroo Point Cliffs are a true Brisbane icon, a majestic span of volcanic rock hugging the banks of the river. Perhaps you’ve seen them hundreds of times, always wondering what it would be like to scale those sheer faces. What will you find, clinging to the wall some 20m above the ground with the beautiful city skyline spread behind you?

It’s time to find out. Pinnacle Sports runs awesome, challenging, exhilarating rock climbing adventures at this unique urban climbing venue. Our 3-hour sessions are perfect for beginners and intermediate climbers, as well as groups, social clubs, parties, school outings and corporate events. With hundreds of routes available, ranging in difficulty from beginner to elite, there is literally something for everyone.

Meet your Pinnacle guide at the base of the cliff where you’ll run through some basic skills – tying in, belaying technique, climbing movement. From there, you’ll be heading straight up the cliff and finding out why so many folks are getting hooked on the sport! If 3 hours just isn’t enough, take a look at our Adults Climbing Course to take your skills to the next level.

Our guides:

Our awesome guides are highly trained, fully accredited, and totally stoked! They’ll teach you everything you need to know, as well as take care of the safety procedures and provide all the gear, including harness, helmet, climbing shoes and all other equipment. All you’ll need is a water bottle, appropriate clothing, and enclosed shoes for getting around the cliffs. If you have some climbing gear already, bring it along and your guide will let you know if it’s good to go.

Session Times:

The session runs for 3 hours from 8am to 11am. Customised times for group bookings are available on request.

Can’t do a pull-up? Don’t worry – technique is much more important than strength! You’ll only need an average level of fitness to take part.

For decades, it has been the perfect introductory location for those who are entering the wonderful world of rock climbing. This mountain has a special place in many climber’s hearts.

Join the ranks and cut your teeth with the help of our fantastic Pinnacle guides. They’ll teach you everything you need to know for the session, from climbing skills to belaying techniques, as well as taking care of all the rigging and safety considerations. No experience needed, just turn up and climb!

Our awesome guides are highly trained, fully accredited, and heaps of fun! They’ll teach you everything you need to know, as well as take care of the safety procedures and provide all the gear, including harness, helmet, climbing shoes and all other technical equipment.

What to bring:

Although your guide will provide all the safety gear, you’ll still need to bring a few bits and pieces, including:

  • Non-restrictive clothing. Check the weather forecast to get an idea of the conditions, but remember that the summit is exposed and weather can change quickly, so a light jacket or wind jacket can be handy

  • Enclosed footwear such as hiking boots or runners, sturdy enough to handle a rough trail

  • A backpack big enough to carry all your gear plus some of the required safety equipment (e.g. ropes)

  • 2-3 litres of water, hat, insect repellent, sunscreen, sunglasses

  • Your own food and snacks, full of energy to keep you happy and psyched!

Fitness Requirements:

Can’t do a pull up? Don’t worry – climbing is more about technique than strength! That said, you will need a moderate amount of fitness to get to the summit of Mt Ngungun. The hike takes about 1 hour, and you’ll need to carry some gear such as ropes in your backpack.

Tibrogargan Guided Climb × × × × × × ×
Tibrogargan Guided Climb

Tibrogargan Guided Climb

Mt Tirbrogargan is one of the spectacular volcanic plugs in the Glass House Mountains and is situated about 65km north of Brisbane. Tirbrogargan boosts some of the longest multi-pitch climbs in Queensland

For millennia, the iconic shapes of the Glasshouse Mountains have captured imaginations, but perhaps the most captivating of all is Mt Tibrogargan.

This proud dome of volcanic rock is famous for its appearance as a giant apelike head, staring out toward the ocean in eternal vigil. It is a place of great historical importance to ancient and modern people alike, a mountain with an undeniably magnetic appeal. If you’re one of many who’ve felt the tug of this striking peak, maybe it’s time to become part of the Tibrogargan story.

Tibro, as it is known to climbers, is perhaps the most popular rock climbing destination in the Glasshouse Mountains. It houses a massive variety of climbs, from short, punchy lines to long, easy scrambles and everything in between. This means that there is literally something for everyone – whether it’s your first time outside of the gym or you’re an experienced climber looking for a new challenge, Tibro has something for you. Our qualified guides will tailor the experience to suit your needs, but here are some of the fantastic options available:

The Caves Route - 300m, Grade 4 
The easiest but longest climb on the mountain, this mountaineering-style classic forms a great introduction to climbing in the Glasshouse Mountains. Fantastic views and a decent amount of exposure make this a memorable outing.

Black Orpheus - 145m, Grade 10
Another historical classic, this route is a superb 4-pitch romp that finishes in one of Tibro’s most impressive caves. Fairly easy, but with enough spice to make it exciting.
Blabbermouth -  200m, Grade 16 
A real treat with beautifully clean rock and exceptionally varied climbing. This route finishes on the iconic Northeast Buttress, where glimpses of the amazing summit caves can be marvelled at.

Zeitgeist – 105m, Grade 17
One of the shorter routes on this list, but certainly packs a punch at the crux! A deservedly popular climb.

Traxion Action - 200m, Grade 17
One of the newer additions to Tibrogargan, this fully-bolted adventure route can be found on the relatively undeveloped South Face. This means lots of shade, which makes it a great option for the warmer months.

Sunburnt Buttress - 200m, Grade 19 
This 6-pitch climb features excellent moves that will keeping you guessing all the way. Once you’ve finished this challenging route, you can relax on top with sweeping views of the region and the upper roof systems of the Northeast Buttress.

Session Times and Location:

This activity runs for about 8 hours and is available on request from Monday to Saturday. It is subject to guide availability and permit requirements, so please contact us to confirm a date by calling our friendly booking team at 07 3368 3335 or emailing online@pinnaclesports.com.au.

Mt Tibrogargan is located in Glasshouse Mountains National Park approximately 60 minutes north of Brisbane. We’ll make it easy by meeting at the Puma Service Station (840 Steve Irwin Way) at approximately 7:00am and returning around 4:00pm.
