Based at Mt Arapiles the Climbing Company was the first dedicated climbing school established in Victoria, way back in 1987.

Mt Arapiles is undoubtedly one of the finest climbing venues in the world. Located in central western Victoria 300kms from Melbourne, Mt Arapiles boasts an impressive list of thousands of climbs. Composed of quartzite sandstone, this superb rock offers climbing at all levels. Whether you are a complete beginner or an elite climber, many classic and beautiful climbs await you. Our instructors live locally, are accomplished climbers in their own right and love their work. The Climbing Company is fully insured and our instructors are ACIA qualified. We are only a stone's throw from the Grampians and so if you are heading in that direction we can help you out.

Chris Peisker owns and has run the Climbing Company since its beginning. Chris has been climbing since he was a young boy and now has four decades of experience behind him.
