Climbing Walls

We are the leading the way in design
& certification of climbing walls

Our goals is to deliver rock climbing walls that offer a superior climbing experience and maximise efficient use of labour and materials for cost effective climbing solutions.

When you work with us, we will deliver a climbing wall that is fully certified by an engineer and completed in accordance with the Australian Standards AS 2316.1-2009, in addition to associated standards and building codes.  We work with a range of materials including plywood cladded indoor walls and fibreglass external walls.

Climbing experience doesn’t equal expertise for climbing wall design and construction.

Summit Climbing Walls has spent 7 years researching and developing our products and as a result we have gained invaluable experience in climbing wall design and construction. This experience allows us to provide the best climbing solutions in Australia and beyond.

We work with you to
create the best climbing solution

We believe that building a first class climbing product requires concise and collaborative consultation.  Our Design Team work with you from day one to identify your rock climbing requirements, installation space and desired aesthetic for your climbing wall.

As part of our design phase, you will be supplied with a 3D model of the proposed climbing wall solution.  This allows for excellent visualisation and feedback for clients during the design process. It also assists us in budgeting estimates for your project.

Once complete, the 3D model provides the shell from which the engineered structure is designed.

The modelling then moves to engineer testing, certification and finally manufacturing and construction of your climbing wall.  We can provide either a standalone climbing wall or a complete turn-key solution that includes route setting, climbing holds, ropes, floor mats and climbing & safety equipment.

Get the most from your wall
with our professional route setting services.

Route setting is a huge part of the success of a climbing wall. In addition to quality design and construction, quality route setting provides the highest utilisation of the wall. Climbers are most engaged on fresh problems that have natural flow and ergonomic movement. Routes that are set to grades also allow feedback on progression and goal achievement.

Whether it’s a new rock climbing wall or an old one not getting the use it should, Summit Climbing Walls can help. Route setting is an intuitive and creative process and a job that our team of experienced route setters can do for you to maximise your walls use.

Our route setters draw on their extensive experience in climbing, general route setting and competition setting to provide create a variety of high quality climbing routes that include:

  • Natural flow and ergonomic movement
  • Routes set to target grades
  • Enjoyable, challenging routes at every grade
  • Routes that incorporate specific climbing skills and technique
    • Body position and sequencing
    • Efficient footwork and weight transfer
    • Initiation of movement

Climbing wall
inspection and maintenance services.

Structural maintenance and reporting is required annually for climbing walls and equipment must be tested quarterly. While this meets Australian Standards, more importantly it will ensure the safety of climbers using your facility.  If you are currently getting your wall and equipment assessed by Rope Access certifiers, this is in fact the incorrect application of standards for climbing walls and your climbers and your business could be at risk.

Summit Climbing Walls provides full maintenance and reporting services for climbing walls in compliance with Australian Standards. A comprehensive testing report is provided on completion of each inspection.  The report provides details on any maintenance required in order to maintain your climbing wall as compliant and safe. Our skilled team can also implement any maintenance required for your climbing wall or equipment.

Summit Climbing Walls can supply inspection and safety reports that are completed in accordance with the Australian Standards AS 2316.1-2009 as applicable for Artificial Climbing Walls.  Our reports consist of but are not limited to:

  • Structural frame
  • Access ladder and Safety Rails
  • All climbing equipment and components
  • Full testing report provided

We design, manufacture and construct engineer approved rock climbing walls and also provide maintenance, route setting and onsite instruction services.
