Hangdog Climbing Gym

Enjoy the thrills of climbing for fun and fitness in the Illawarra’s only purpose built indoor rock and boulder climbing gym. A great place for birthday parties, social groups, corporate groups and others to do something a bit different and a great alternative to weights or aerobics for those wanting a challenging work out.

Indoor rock climbing is a great way to introduce total beginners of all ages to the thrills of climbing in a controlled environment. We can teach you how to belay (hold and control the rope) for your partner safely in a few minutes at the beginning of your first visit. Please note that children under 12 are not allowed to belay and therefore must be accompanied by an adult to climb. The introductory lesson is free with your entry charge. Once you are competent at belaying you can climb or attempt to climb any of the many different routes in the gym.

We have over a 100 different climbs on 40 ropes so there is always a great range of climbs from easy to extremely challenging.
