Our Story

Welcome To On Belay Climbing

where adventure, community, and passion for climbing come together. We are Peter and Emma, and our journey through the world of climbing has spanned over 15 years. From our first footholds to becoming a vital part of the climbing community, we’re excited to share our story and vision with you.

Our Climbing Roots

Peter’s climbing journey began in the early 2000s at Paramount Adventure Centre in Burleigh Heads on the Gold Coast. This gym holds a special place in his heart, as it’s where his love for climbing first took root. Over the years, Peter’s involvement in climbing has evolved through various roles, from working at gyms and route setting to coaching and leading guided rock climbing trips.

Our Vision for On Belay Climbing

When the opportunity arose to acquire Paramount Adventure Centre, we saw more than just an old gym; we saw potential. Our passion for climbing and commitment to the climbing community led us to rebrand and renovate this historic climbing establishment into On Belay Climbing.
