Kids Climbing at Extreme Edge, Glen Eden

Extreme Edge Glen Eden is the perfect indoor 'playground' for kids of all ages.

With over 30 different creatively themed ClimbZone walls, you can climb anything from an enormous dinosaur skeleton, to a giant beanstalk or even clamber up the sails of a pirate ship!

There's no shortage of fun for kids and adults alike - entertainment for the whole family is what we're about!

We require shoes to be worn when climbing the walls (standard trainers are best) and for your safety, no jewellery such as necklaces or rings is permitted on children under 16years, plus no jerseys with hoodies. Children under 16 years must be actively supervised by an adult. The minimum age for belaying on our Extreme Edge sports climbing walls is 14 years.

Our friendly climbing instructors are always on-hand to assist.

Rock Hoppers Club - Glen Eden

For kids who are bitten by the climbing bug we offer our Rock Hoppers Club. These are scheduled classes teaching a variety of skills and technique required to climb routes of increasing difficulty level. The emphasis is still on fun but it gets more challenging as the kids get better. Our Rock Hoppers sessions are suitable for ages 8 to 16.

  • Safety knowledge
  • Knot tying
  • Communication
  • Belaying
  • Slack lining
  • The 'Big Swing'
  • Equipment knowledge
  • Lead Climbing
  • Route reading
  • Hold identification
  • Footwork
