Welcome to CityROCK  Johannesburg!
Climb     I        Gear      I      Yoga

The tallest indoor climbing gym in Africa, CityROCK Johannesburg is a world-class facility complete with the best coffee in town.

The gym boasts 2,000m² of high wall climbing; 124 top rope anchors; 9 automatic belay walls; 500m² of bouldering; a 300m²  climbing and outdoor gear shop; a 100m² yoga studio; a cardio and strength training area; and a dedicated beginners’ climbing area for birthday parties, children’s climbing, and our introductory courses.

If you’ve never climbed or you’ve never seen the inside of a world-class climbing gym, CityROCK is worth a visit! The design and height of the walls (and let’s not forget the coffee) will leave you excited and eager to jump onto a route. Come and give it a try!

Safety first

All climbers and belayers must pass our compulsory top rope belay test. We advise new climbers to book a spot on one of  our introductory courses and familiarise yourself with our facility rules. Upon completion of the belay test you will receive an orange top belay test tag which must be clearly displayed when climbing or belaying. Note: We only use the Grigri belay device for all top rope climbing. If you are not familiar with the Grigri, we offer a 10-minute refresher.

The video will take you through our top rope belay test. If you do not know what we are talking about in the video, you will need to take our introductory course.
