ROCK HOPPERS Kids Classes
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 our entry-level kid’s program aimed at 8-12 year olds climbing grade 15 or less. The class provides training in foundational climbing techniques through activities and games on the walls and around the gym. It’s the perfect class to build confidence in climbing and have fun learning.
Term fee: $110
The Super Hoppers class is for kids looking to take their climbing to the next level. The program is aimed at kids aged 12-16 and climbing at grade 15 or above. Weekly lessons provide advanced technique coaching and a safe introduction to strength training. All Super Hoppers are taught how to belay on top ropes.
Term fee: $130
Super Hoppers who comfortably climb at a grade of 18 and demonstrate excellent safety skills will be invited to join Lead Night. This is an additional class to the Tuesday night Super Hoppers class which is primarily focused on learning lead climbing skills. For more information about lead climbing, please ask an instructor.
Term fee: $130
For young lead climbers who have spent extensive time developing technique and fitness, our Competition Class provides participants with a structured development programme for a small group of aspiring athletes. Our team aims to compete regularly at regional and national events. If you are looking to pursue competitive climbing, contact us to speak to an instructor.
Term fee: $245
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).

Want to work closely with a coach, or need to learn something special? We offer private custom tuition options for both climbing movement and skills, fear management, and technical rope work.
We offer private coaching for those who want to properly assess their ability and develop technique in an individualised lesson. These sessions begin with a structured assessment to identify strength and weaknesses from which our coaches outline key training goals. The lesson will help to develop essential skills within a focused training space and is suitable for anyone climbing up to grade 24. Participants will be provided with takeaway notes and activities for future skill development.
$60p/h (maximum of two participants per instructor)
