Wall surface type: Rock-Realistic
Beginner WeeKidz® Traverse Wall®
This preschool climbing wall is a beginner version of our popular Standard Traverse Wall®. Climbing on the Beginner WeeKidz® Traverse Wall® not only helps build gross motor skills, but also helps children develop patience, perseverance and problem-solving skills. These unique learning opportunities enhance any early childhood program.
The 6′10"-high WeeKidz® preschool climbing wall features blue, red and yellow hand holds in a variety of large, child-friendly shapes including grab-bar style hand holds and ledge-style footholds to make the introduction to climbing easier. Blue hand holds are the largest and easiest to grip. The yellow holds come in a variety of sizes and offer a light challenge. The red holds are medium sized and provide the most challenge. Climbers can choose to use any color hand hold, or try the extra challenge of climbing using only holds of the same color. Our signature Red-Relief Line® is a safety feature that reminds climbers to stay within a distance of 2 ½ feet from the floor and is a helpful tool for the climbing wall supervisor. On walls 20′ or longer, there are also ten “critters” (animal-shaped hand holds) on the wall. Children are excited to look for, and climb, on the turtle, dragonfly, hippo and more!
Each Beginner WeeKidz Traverse Wall panel includes 10 Groperz Hand Holds, 6 grab-bar style hand holds, 4 ledge-style foot holds, 66 preset placement options for mounting hand holds, the Red-Relief Line and an activity guide with lesson plans.
Safety mats and a way to “close” the climbing wall to prevent unauthorized climbing are recommended. View our Mat-Locking® System.

How is the WeeKidz Traverse Wall different from your other traverse walls?
A WeeKidz Traverse Wall® in only 6'10" high, compared to 8 or 10-feet high for our other Traverse Walls. Also, the Red-Relief Line is placed lower to keep children closer to the mats. In addition, the magnet-accepting surface is perfect for integrating early childhood learning and movement!
What activities can be done on the WeeKidz Traverse Wall?
A variety of fun climbing wall games and activities can be hosted on your preschool climbing wall. The included activity guide offers age-appropriate ideas, including those that integrate climbing with language and math concepts.
What do we need for safety surfacing?
Mats are an important safety component of your climbing wall. Everlast Climbing offers safety mats in two thicknesses: 2” and 3". Mats are constructed of polyethylene foam enclosed in an 18-oz. polyester reinforced vinyl cover. They come in 4’x 6’ sections and are available in Royal Blue, Red and 14 custom colors (for an additional cost).
How can we prevent unauthorized climbing?
Our patented Mat-Locking® System closes and locks your climbing wall when you want to restrict access. The system is cordless and really easy to use. Simply hang mats onto the climbing wall by hanging the webbing loops onto specially-designed hand holds. Push up the red security latch and lock with a few turns of the security bold. The mats Velcro® to one another and attach to the base of the climbing wall with nylon tabs. A "No Climbing" decal is printed on the outer side of the mats to serve as notice that the climbing wall is closed.
Are animal-shaped climbing holds on all WeeKidz Climbing Walls?
Critterz, or animal-shaped hand holds, are included in WeeKidz Walls that are at least 20-feet long.
