Our programmes run alongside the school terms and teach children climbing techniques mixed with fun challenges and games. Each class improves individual climbing ability and knowledge while promoting physical literacy, health and confidence.

We’re very excited to launch an entirely new youth programme structure in 2020. This is something that has long been in the works, and we are proud of the pathway we’re now able to deliver. This is a set progression system for our students, ready to support their goals.

We have a dedicated set of Head Coaches and a Youth Classes Coordinator to answer all your questions. Simply get in touch at coaches@extremeedge.co.nz

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 $145 per person for members, $175 per person for non-members.
We typically run this clinic over Monday and Wednesday from 6pm to 9pm (6hrs total).

Private Lead Clinic $210 per person.
You can coordinate times and days with an instructor to suit you (minimum of 2 participants).

*Please note that in order for you to join one of our lead clinics you must be able to climb a grade 18 comfortably and be signed-off to Top Rope belay at the Extreme Edge.
