St Andrew’s College Climbing Gym opens

It’s with great excitement that we officially open the St Andrew’s College Climbing Gym.

The idea was conceived in 2019 and since then we have worked hard to make this dream a reality. Climbing at the school was born out of the Outdoor Club and driven by a small group of students. It has been through their passion that we have got to this stage and we have seeing the sport starting to take a foothold among their peers, growing week by week with the prospect of their own facility to now train in.

The Gym consists of three bouldering walls and a Moon board, with just over 120 square meters of total climbing space. The center piece of the gym is certainly the Moon Board, which is a state of the art Wall that uses Bluetooth and LED lighting to plot a climbers route. It is a universal board and will allow our students to train and compete in on an international standard.

I would like to thank all the parties at College who have worked behind the scenes to make this project a reality. I know it will certainly benefit ours boys for decades to come.
