Specialised courses or days out also include:
Introduction to Rock Climbing
Our introductory course focuses on maximum time actually climbing, whilst learning safe technique along the way. The climbing will range from easy to challenging and there is also the option to experience abseiling. This course is ideal for those who have never climbed before, or only on an indoor wall.
Experience the thrill of stepping off a cliff edge into space… under the control of a safety rope of course! As much mentally challenging as it is physical, our instructors will lead you through the basics at ground level first before taking you to the top, all on the doorstep of Mt Aspiring National Park. If the sheer drop doesn’t take your breath away, the scenery certainly will!
Push yourself mentally and physically by learning to lead climb in New Zealand’s premiere (and most scenic) sport climbing venue. This course teaches the essentials for leading bolted sport routes; from runner placement and clipping methods, safety considerations, route selection and much more.
Want to experience the best of Wanaka rock? An experienced climber but no climbing partner or gear? Our team will be happy to show you the best routes, suited to your ability and objectives.
