Bouldering involves climbing without a rope up to 4 metres high. The wall has a large padded mat under it that you will land on if you fall or when you are jumping down.
Bouldering is a great for building strength and is a fun social activity if you want to work on figuring out difficult routes with those around you.
PCCG has 9 panels that have a variety of boulder problems with a range of difficulty levels. Bouldering is suitable for all ages of experience levels.
Top roping is where you climb the high wall while you are attached to a rope.
At PCCG, you can top rope using an auto belay device or with a partner. Each day pass purchase includes two belays with one of our staff members.
Top roping is a great way to build strength and conquer any fear of heights that you may have.
Lead climbing is done on the same walls as top rope, but involves different technique. The climber clips their rope onto the wall as they climb, which means that a climber has the potential to fall further than with top rope.
Lead climbing can not be done with an auto belay and must be done with a belayer. A lead belayer's job is complex as they give rope and take up slack as the climber heads up the wall.
