All first time or novice junior (4-17 years) and adult (18+) climbers need to take a 45 minute Induction Plus class.

The Induction Plus class will also need to be taken by any adult wishing to supervise a junior climber.


Any adult who has had their Induction Plus class can climb unsupervised.

14 – 17 year old climbers can only climb unsupervised if given permission by parent/legal guardian and the junior climber has either completed their Level 3 NIBAS or shown acceptable, responsible behaviour on at least 5 separate occasions climbing at Boulder Shack.

Before climbing at the Boulder Shack all climbers must watch the Boulder Shack induction video and complete the centre waver. This can be done online here or on arrival.


4-5 year old climbers must be supervised on a 1:1 ratio at all times.

6-13 year old climbers must be supervised at all times with a maximum ratio of 1 adult to 2 children.

14-17 year old climbers must be supervised by an adult in a 1 adult to 2 juniors ratio unless they have completed their Level 3 NIBAS or shown responsible behaviour on at least 5 separate occasions climbing at the Boulder Shack.
