Climbing is ideal for school programs because its on-traditional status avoids the preconceptions typically hold for physical activity, and it’s high perceived risk helps it transcend existing social boundaries within student groups. Students will find themselves working and climbing alongside peers in a positive and supportive manner not possible in regular physical activity settings. The Junction meets or exceeds all OPHEA guidelines for vertical activity.

You can choose between Rappelling or Ascending.
The Junction is unique amongst climbing gyms as it has an indoor 3 storey high rappel deck. Rappelling stands apart as a climbing activity because it has low physical demands, insteading requiring a high mental and emotional commitment. Groups with disinterest in physical exertion and groups with an overconfident approach to sports are both challenged by this essential climbing skill.
Forget the struggle of climbing a rope in gym class. Ascending using our prussiks, ascenders, and carabiners will have you climbing into the rafters!
