Valley Crag Indoor Climbing Centre has the biggest wall to experience wall climbing in Gqeberha (Previously Port-Elizabeth), Eastern Cape. The climbing wall is about 500 square meters in total and you get to practice top rope and lead climbing. There is also rock climbing training equipment if you consider taking wall climbing up as a hobby and there is an energetic and experienced team ready to assist every type of climber at Valley Crag.
Top-Rope climbing is ideal for beginners and is very safe due to the anchor points that are used. There are different climbing routes to choose from, depending on your experience level and they are colour coded for easy identification. Prior to the climb, a general rope safety lesson is provided to all climbers to ensure your climb is safe and fun!
Lead climbing anchors are distributed all around the area, and this is ideal for more experience and brave climbers. Learn and master techniques on a vertical wall, like “clipping” and test your skills and strength on the renowned arch.
