Indoor bouldering innovation caters for all levels of climber

Indoor bouldering innovation caters for all levels of climber
April 16, 2018

The world's first augmented reality climbing wall, ValoClimb, is proving extremely popular with exclusive Australia and New Zealand distributors, The Highgate Group, having been overwhelmed with the response to the latest in indoor climbing options.

Highgate Sales Manager Todd Austin explains “ValoClimb is for every fitness level. It challenges professional climbers like no other indoor system can do and converts novice climbers first go. Once you’ve tried ValoClimb, you’ll just want to keep going.”

Created by Finland’s games and hardware developer, Valo Motion, ValoClimb utilises 'active play technology'. ValoClimb invites anyone, from the youngest kids to hard training adults to have an amazing time and get a great physical exercise.

Requiring only 5 metre² space for installation, ValoClimb uses a cloud-based platform which means it’s easy to use and low maintenance for operators, with the system actively monitored and updated with more games and applications. Being an autonomous system means that there is no requirement for staff to supervise the wall.

ValoClimb offers climbers one or two player games from ‘Whack a bat’ and ‘Sparks’ through to ‘Augmented problems’ for the climbers who want to challenge and improve their technique.

With The Highgate Group having introduced the product in Australasia 12 month ago, Austin adds “I’ve seen crowds of people gather around the ValoClimb screaming at the competitors to ‘splat a bat’ or beat their competitor. The level of competition and crowd engagement ValoClimb offers is really unlike anything we’ve ever seen in the leisure industry before.”

The Highgate Group will be demonstrating the ValoClimb in action at the upcoming Sydney Fitness Show from 20th to 22nd April.
