Welcome to Extreme Edge Indoor Climbing Wall Hamilton, and our new ClimbZone.
We are the largest indoor rock climbingfacility in the Waikato and we have heapsof great quality climbs suitable forbeginners through to advanced lead climbers.Climbing is a fun, safe sport for people ofany age and fitness level. You do not needto be a great athlete to have a great time andwe can provide all the gear you need.
No membership is required, no experience is necessary and all first-timers get a free safety lesson from one of our experienced instructors. They’ll teach you how to be safe at the wall, how to use our state of the art equipment and give you some pointers on which area of the gym will probably suit you best.
Now, don’t be scared by the word “Gym” that we used earlier, anyone and everyone can have a good time here. You can keep fit and get stronger and more flexible without even realising it’s happening! We’re pretty sure that’s the only kind of gym that should be allowed.
The CLIMBZONE is now open
Come and check out our fantastic new climbing walls - same location, same price, same friendly service.
The Climbzone is aimed at younger people but is open to people of all ages. The climbzone is bright and colouful - perfect for birthday parties, class trips and family outings.
The Climbzone also features automatic belay systems so mum and dad can have a coffee (or a climb!) while kids climb safely. Supervision is still required for those under 14 years and belayers are still required in the Extreme Edge (the older walls).
Check out our building progress and the finished product in the 'Climbzone' photo gallery (link above).
