Rock climbing is a fun, challenging and rewarding activity that is never affected by the weather. Best of all it is safe for all ages.

Indoor climbing is a great way to have fun with your children by either climbing together, assisting them to climb or supervising them to climb with their friends (age dependant).

School holidays is a great time to visit our Malaga centre. Our instructors will get you set up and ready to climb so you can enjoy exploring the centre on your own. Malaga is the best centre to visit with children where you can work together on a climb with the safety and support of a roped wall system. City West is best for ages 12+ although we do welcome all ages at both gyms.
