#8. Rock climbing
📍Southern Rock Climbing Centre, New Germany, KZN
If we had to rank our first 8 activities, this one would compete for 1st place. True story. Loved it👌🏽
🥳Fun factor: KC says “that was AWESOME!” and it really really was.
🏋🏾♀️Fitness level required: Come as you are. They have different difficulty levels so you’ll start easy & work your way up.
👧🏾 Suitability for kids: from about 6years old it’s a go. Kids are strapped up and climb using a safety harness. You can also host kids parties here which seems like a great option if you’re wanting an active birthday celebration.
💸Cost: A day pass is R130 for adults & R95 for students.
What we loved most:
– We love that we can do this “outdoor” activity even when it’s raining. The indoor climbing walls are a superb option for a rainy day.
– There are so many elements to this sport. There’s the definite physical requirement but then there’s also the technical skill, planning and agility. We love activities that stretch us.
– The staff is welcoming and extremely helpful. Alisa looked after us the whole time we were there, giving us tips, sharing some history and just generally being a wonderful person. She’s very much one of the reasons we took to this activity so readily!
🚦 What you need to know : If you have trouble with your shoulders then you may have to give it a miss.
In summary: this surpassed our expectations in every way. There is so much wall to climb and so many variations of how to climb each wall. We loved how this one stretched us physically and mentally. We love that you can come with the kids (although we didn’t this time). We LOVE that you can do this in rainy weather. We just loved it, okay. Best believe we’ll be back.
