Maybe you’ve spent some time getting strong in the gym, but feel as though it’s time to move outdoors. Or maybe you joined us for one of our awesome climbing sessions and it’s got you itching to touch more rock. Either way, the skills you need to get climbing outside are covered in our Top Rope Climbing Course.

This is a nationally accredited course designed to teach you the best practices for safe climbing at any crag with top rope access – think Kangaroo Point, Mt Ngungun or Brooyar. Our qualified instructors will teach you everything you need to know to build your own anchors for climbing or abseiling. Don’t leave it to guesswork, get trained by the best.

Training consists of theory (exams sent prior) and practical.

Keep in mind that alumni of any of our courses are invited you to join our exclusive Pinnacle Climber’s Club – it’s our way of welcoming you to the Pinnacle family, as well as the SEQ climbing community. As well as honing your climbing technique, you’ll also get some other cool benefits like 20% of RRP for anything in our Red Hill store!
