Our Rock Hoppers program run alongside the school terms, and aim to teach children climbing technique mixed with fun challenges and games. Each class improves individual climbing ability and knowledge while promoting physical literacy, health and confidence.

Rock climbing is the perfect sport for active children. It develops full body strength, power and fine motor control. A climber only needs to carry their body up the wall, making it easy on developing joints compared to lifting weights or long running sessions. Mentally, climbing focuses on remaining calm, building confidence, safety and trust. Outdoor climbing serves as an excellent introduction to conservation and caring for the environment.

All programs at Extreme Edge are structured to provide the best possible climbing experience for children of all ages and abilities. Safety is our #1 priority when coaching, and it has been shown that indoor climbing is much safer than most other sports.


The Rock Hoppers class is an introduction for children aged 6-12 to the fundamentals of rock climbing while retaining a sense of fun and excitement. Each term the class will cover basic skills such as quiet feet, straight arms and rock climbing terminology. It’s the perfect class to build confidence in climbing and have fun learning.

Lead Clinics

Lead climbing is a difficult skill that demands a lot of learning and practice, including a full understanding of both climbing and belaying. This is a serious skill for which we are proud to offer the best, safest, learning programme taught by experienced and highly trained instructors.

The Lead Clinic at Extreme Edge Panmure is designed to provide participants with a safe and effective foundation for lead climbing indoors. In our courses, we teach lead climbing and lead belaying with an ATC belay device. The course will teach all safety procedures, equipment use and care. We do not teach abseiling and route cleaning in this class, but these skills can be taught in a custom lesson.

The clinic is generally held over two classes on two different days, 3 hours per day. You may choose between a public or private clinic:

Public Lead Clinic $120pp for members, $150pp for non-members.
We typically run this clinic over Monday and Wednesday from 6pm to 9pm (6hrs total).

Private Lead Clinic $180pp.
You can coordinate times and days with an instructor to suit you (minimum of 2 participants).
