Reaching new heights

Dalplex has a bouldering wall members can climb without supervision, and a Rock Court where members receive an accreditation and can climb with more varied terrain, and opportunities for rope climbing. 

Fieldhouse Bouldering Wall



Rock Court



Getting your Rock Court climbing accreditation

An accreditation is required before using the Dalplex climbing facilities. This accreditation outlines polices and procedures, safe falling practices, spotting, knowing when to/when not to use the drag mat, and where to stand/where not to stand in the Rock Court. The top rope accreditation also reviews rope safety. 

Climbing accreditation

Call our Customer Service Centre at 902-494-3372 for more information or register for your accreditation online

Student group accreditations

Do you have a society or student group that would like to use the Rock Court? Call our Climbing Coordinator at 902-494-1605 for more information about student group accreditations. 


Rock Court Waiver

All users must complete and sign a waiver to use the Rock Court. Members under the age of 19 must provide a waiver signed by a parent or guardian.
