After pioneering indoor climbing in Sydney in 1993 (first in NSW), we upgraded to a new "high" standard in 2003 by building our new venue in St Peters. After several upgrades since, it becaame the country's largest, with around 2900 m2 of climbing walls. The company is owned and operated by three climbers, Mike Garben, Simon Stevens, and Tony Meer.


In 2010 the three original owners joined with Kip Newing, Neil Lasker and David Stone to build a gym at least the equal of St Peters, at Villawood. Our goal was to go the next step in gym design. In 2014 we opened St Peters Stage 3, with an extra 1000m2 of climbing walls.
