The Ledge

The Ledge Climbing Centre, located within the grounds of the University of Sydney, features state of the art and textured climbing walls by Entreprises and Radwall and routes by one of Australians most experienced route-setters. At The Ledge, we aim to satisfy the adult climbing enthusiast, no matter what their level of experience.

The Ledge Climbing Centre is characterised by its vibrant social atmosphere and provides a comfortable and controlled environment in which to practice, challenge and excel as a climber.

Climbs range from beginner to advanced, and cater to all levels of skill and ability. A complete bouldering and training area, including finger and campus boards, completes the package.

New climbers will be greeted with a complimentary safety induction detailing how the belay systems in the centre operate. Experienced staff will always be on hand to supervise and assist climbers.
