Bio: Les Rock was formed in September, 2007 and is a social indoor/outdoor rockclimbing network for lesbians, open to all, in and around Melbourne. The aim is to meet like minded people who enjoy climbing.

The network is open to all with any skill level, ranging from beginners to advanced, generally climb for approximately two hours
Technical equipment:
Indoor rock climbing requires special shoes and a harness. If you are a beginner and you don’t have any equipment, the Hardrock gym can provide everything for you. If however you are planning to come regularly, having your own gear will be more cost effective in the long run.
It is recommended to wear something comfortable – gym gear such as tracksuit pants or shorts and a t-shirt plus a warm top/jumper (in Winter) is ideal.
Don’t forget to bring a bottle of water and a snack so you can rest and re-fuel during the night.
A basic level of fitness is required, if you can climb a ladder then you can rock climb. With time you will build an improved level of overall fitness, strength and flexibility. Rock climbing is also very good for your creativity.
During your first time at the gym, the Hardrock gym instructors will go through the security check and teach you how to belay. It is very important for the safety of yourself and others that you carefully observe these instructions and always remember to check both your own and your partners equipment prior to commencing a climb.
