Welcome to Cliffhanger, Australia's tallest climbing gym, with routes as long as 27 meters. 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.
