SCHOOL GROUPS

ROCK CLIMBING AND ABSEILING GROUPS

If you are a teacher looking to run a climbing camp Arapiles is a superb venue. Good camping, stable weather, short approaches, and it’s many easy to moderate classic multi-pitch climbs, Arapiles is ideally suited for school groups. All most without exception, students exclaim that getting to experience multi-pitch climbing was the best part of their camp. Students will retain these memories for the rest of their lives!

You probably don’t need me to tell you that rock climbing is a great medium for students to develop and explore their relationship to the natural world. Self- reliance, self- trust, confidence and working with others are all qualities that naturally evolve through the activity that is climbing.

We will work with you to design a programme that is progressive and interesting. We understand you have a budget so we can discuss options so you get the best value for your buck. The Climbing Company works within ACIA guidelines so students get plenty of individual attention as well as maximising safety.

If you have an outdoor education group we can provide a visual/talk presentation that addresses relevant course material. We can also organize the opportunity for groups to do some community service. This can include tree planting and watering, weeding or track work. For extended camps we can provide guided walks or rock journeys which can give a fun alternative to climbing.

The Climbing Company has many years of experience with school groups and a long list of schools that return year after year. You will find our rates very competitive.

CHRIS PEISKER

The Climbing Company consists of a close knit group of instructors who are experts at what they do. You can be assured you will have a great and fun experience.

Aaron Lowndes owns the Climbing Company and has run it for the last 1.5 years. Aaron has been climbing since he was a young boy and now has close to three decades of experience behind him.

He has travelled all over the world in pursuit of amazing rock, and enjoys classic low-grade adventure routes just as much as harder technical climbing (if grade 29/8a/5.13a means anything to you, that’s his top so far). Prior to starting Melbourne Climbing School in 2015 and acquiring The Climbing Company in 2022, Aaron spent countless weekends voluntarily teaching organised groups rock climbing safety skills, and has facilitated hundreds of new climbers in their transition onto real rock.

Aaron is fully committed to the rock climbing industry, and is a current board member of the Australian Climbing Instructor’s Association (ACIA).

Apart from the physical benefits that climbing provides it also allows a person to take charge and learn that one can be safe, but also explore one's limits in the vertical world the rock provides.

The two most important things a person can find in life is a passion, then the courage to trust one’s heart and follow that passion.
