Safety

Your safety is very important to us. All new climbers to our gym are given instruction in the use of all safety equipment; this takes a few minutes.

Should you have any concerns, our friendly staff will be available to assist you further until you are confident with the equipment.

We use only 10+mm dynamic climbing rope on all our top-rope routes. Ropes run over ‘slow-go’ pulleys and GRIGRIs which are self locking devices to ensure climbers safety. Professional carpeted gymnastic mats have been installed along the base of our walls to further maximize safety.

We also have an evacuation procedure in place.

Rockface increased our insurance to meet the WA School Standard minimum requirement of $20,000,000 Public Liability to cover student outings.

Effective 1st April 2015
