Hi ROCK is a community indoor climbing wall situated at The Hayling College on Hayling Island.
It is exists to provide all members of the community with an exciting activity suitable for families and individuals alike. The wall offers facilities for people of all ages and abilities, including elements suitable for people with visual impairment, limited mobility and learning difficulties.
The main wall offers a range of climbing grades suitable for the novice or experienced climber.
Located indoors, the wall can be used all year round, making this a great activity whatever the weather. Climbing promotes physical fitness, concentration, self confidence and team work.
Hi ROCK was conceived in 2009 when PC Debbie Surridge of Hayling Island Police formed a partnership with The Hayling College, Hampshire County Council Extended Services and volunteers. Funding was needed and the team made a successful bid for £50,000 from The People's Millions. The project received the third highest number of votes nationally, attracting 16,000 votes. Following this success, the partnership worked tirelessly to make the climbing wall a reality. The wall opened to the public on Friday 22nd July 2011.
Hi ROCK is a non profit organisation, all monies collected are reinvested in new equipment and keeping the wall open.
