Quick (Indoor) Climbing Definitions

Bouldering

Low-level climbing without the need for rope or a harness, and crash mats below to catch you if you fall. Can be done solo and with minimal equipment (climbing shoes are often still required at most venues) making this a great beginner option.

Top Rope

The climber wears a harness attached to a rope anchored at the top of the climb. The rope is either controlled by an auto-belay or more commonly a second person or ‘belayer’ who pulls in the rope as the climber ascents. This means that if the climber falls, they simply dangle from the rope and can resume climbing, or be lowered to the ground.

Beginners can usually try top rope climbing on their first visit with an introduction, as long as the belayer is signed off as competent by the venue first.

Lead Climbing

A more intermediate to advanced technique where the climber clips the rope to anchors in the rock wall as they climb. The chance for bigger falls is greater and the previous climbing experience is needed to simultaneously climb, clip, and plan your route. You will still need a belayer. This is often the climbing style used outdoors.

Good to know…
  • 1 or 2-hour entry
  • Bounce socks will be needed (additional charge)
  • no gear hire is needed
  • birthday party options

Although Bounce isn’t technically a climbing or bouldering gym, it made the list as an ideal place for little people to have a go at climbing on kid-friendly walls with fun, brightly coloured holds.

Zero experience is needed as the staff will help with the harness, and all of the climbs are auto-belay, taking away the technical abilities needed at some other indoor climbing centres.

You can’t just buy tickets for Wall Climb access so you will have a chance to use the whole Bounce venue. Little climbers will also love the X-park and high ropes course (Joondalup only).
