“Our “GaP n Back” crew took the leap of faith with Earl! What an experience!! Earl’s expertise and words of encouragement with kids & adults alike gave everyone the chance to step out of their comfort zone and experience the thrill of abseiling off a 22m cliff face. Rock climbing catered for the diversity of our group of ages 5 and above! Highly recommend for a group of all ages.” – Kerry Goodridge
Why Rock Climb and Abseil?
Leave the workplace and allow for your team to work together for different goals in a safe, enjoyable atmosphere. For many years outdoor courses in climbing and abseiling have helped facilitate considerable learnings and breakthroughs for individuals and groups. The heightened awareness and learnings an individual can achieve are character building and potentially very significant for personal and team development.
In the climbing environment, the use of communication, support and encouragement are paramount for success. These same skills, when used in an individual’s common environment, will intuitively help them reach the same success in life and the workplace.
While climbing can be challenging, no previous climbing experience is necessary and only basic fitness is required.

Lookout Point Wall
Located in the Halls Gap area on the Wonderland Range at a similar elevation to The Pinnacle, Lookout Point towers above the valley of Halls Gap. It has spectacular views and is a surprisingly good site in poor weather. The meeting place is the Sundial car park, a 15-minute drive from Halls Gap with bus parking and toilet facilities. A 5-minute walk takes us to the climbing area, which also has a 22-meter abseil and offers 6 climbs from easy to moderate grade and works well for groups less than twenty-four. Lookout Point Wall has some of the most spectacular climbs that we instruct and some of the best “Kodak moments”. This site is a 4-hr walk from Halls Gap, which can be an excellent option if your group wants to include a bush-walk on the day.
A half-day (4-hr) session enables participants to get a taste for real rock climbing. They learn safe belay techniques, knots, and basic climbing communication. In addition, each person is given the chance to complete an abseil.
Alternatively a full day (8hrs) of climbing and abseiling may be preferred. A full day is more comprehensive; we are able to build upon the skills learnt on a half day course giving the group the opportunity take things at its own pace to achieve higher goals, working on movement on rock, communication, mental awareness and trust in one another.
