Highwall Roped Climbing (Sport Climbing)
From beginner to expert, CityROCK offers a fun and challenging climbing experience for all.
Autobelays / Clip in and Climb
This is a great introduction to High Climbing as you do not need experience or require a climbing partner. The rope is attached at the top of the wall (around 16m) to a braking system in case of a fall, similar to a car seat belt, and will lower you gently back down to the ground. A harness and climbing shoes are required. A belay test is not necessary. First time visitors will need to do a safety orientation to learn how to safely use the Autobelay systems.
Top Rope Climbing
Requires a team of two: climber and belayer. The belayer stays on the ground and controls the rope attached to the climber using a belay device in the event of a fall. The rope runs through an anchor at the top of the wall as the climber ascends the route. The routes require a bit of stamina as they go up to a height of 16 meters.
New top rope climbers and belayers: you must pass our compulsory Top Rope Belay test. Climbers must be 13 years or older. Upon completion of the test you will receive a Red/Orange Top Belay Test tag which must be displayed on your harness at all times.
Note: We only use the Grigri belay device for all Top Rope climbing. If you are not familiar with the Grigri we do offer a 10 minute refresher.
