Climb to the top at City Rock
This is a must for active kids, or those who’re after something a bit different. Don’t stress – it may be the tallest indoor climbing gym in Africa but there’s a dedicated kids section, and support staff to help. Kids love it … there’s an element of fearlessness about the whole thing, but the helpers are there with ropes to manage the process of these mini-climbers/ Rambo’s/ Ramborettes. And it’s such a memorable experience.
It took a year to construct and five years to plan, and you can see it. It really is a world-class facility.
For the adults, the gym has 2000m2 of high wall climbing, 124 top rope anchors, 9 automatic belay walls, and a 300m2 well stocked outdoor gear shop and a 100m2 yoga studio. Then there’s a cardio and strength training area and a dedicated beginners’ climbing area for birthday parties, kids and courses.
