HOT: Clip ‘n’ Climb, Williamstown

Kids climbing the walls? Then get out of the house and get them climbing ACTUAL walls at Clip n Climb Williamstown.

Clip n Climb Williamstown is an indoor rock climbing centre with 19 climbing challenges, including the daring Leap of Faith. Are you game? (I’m not!)

Kids as young as 3 years can clip and climb but it’s more suitable for kids 4+ years as some of the steps and gaps are too big for little legs.

As you can see, four-year-old Baby 2.0 loves it!

Every session of Clip n Climb goes for 1 hour plus a 15-minute safety briefing, where the instructors show everyone how to lock and unlock the carabiner that secures the safety harness while climbing.

An instructor then checks that the harness is clipped in properly before each climb.

There are always trained adult supervisors within the climbing space and if you’re under 12 you have to have them check your harness before each climb.

The climbing arena fits 22-25 kids with walls of varying levels of difficulty. Baby 2.0 starts off with some of the easier climbs, gets progressively more confident with the harder climbs, then starts to tire so reverts back to the easier climbs.

An hour doesn’t seem like a long time for play but I think the kids get noticeably tired and less motivated after about 30 minutes.

Clip n Climb Williamstown have two party areas (one upstairs, one downstairs) and an on-site cafe with snacks and drinks.
