Welcome to Cliffhanger!

Australia's tallest climbing gym

We've had a huge year, including visits from international climbers Tommy Caldwell and Kevin Jorgeson. In August, we hosted Sport Climbing Australia's first ever team camp, with many of the harder routes still up. Good luck Team Australia, in the lead up to Tokyo! Cliffhanger was also proud to host Sport Climbing Victoria's state lead titles in February.

Youth League Inter Club Sessions

Cliffhanger is pleased to announce the launch of a brand new initiative, the Youth League. The Youth League is a social series, where youth squads from around Victoria pit themselves against each other to gain flash climbing experience, and of course, have fun. 

The last session held at Gravity Works was a great success with lots of excellent climbs, check out the action here.

The next session will be held here at Cliffhanger on the 17th of November, 10 am-12 noon.Click here for more information about this exciting social competition
