We offer a range of trip options and you can choose to join an open trip or have a instructor/guide all to yourself. With our different trips we have something for you,  from top roped introductions to advanced lead and multi pitch climbing.

We provide all equipment but if you have your own you are welcome to use it.

The ‘Introduction To Rock Climbing’ is our most popular trip, you get the opportunity to experience outdoor rock climbing in a safe and fun way, focusing on maximum time actually climbing, whilst learning safe practices and good technique along the way. It is ideal for those who have never climbed before, or only on an indoor wall.The climbing can range from easy to challenging and we keep the group sizes small to ensure everyone has a great time and is challenged at their own level, our qualified instructors/guides will take you to the most suitable venue in the beautiful Matukituki Valley near Wanaka.

Our Lead Climbing trip is also popular;

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. It is also a must do for people who had a friend teach them but want to check they have good and safe techniques.We keep our ratios small (1:4 max), so the course is tailored to you and our instructors always check what you already know (of course you may not have any lead climbing knowledge).

How about the trip YOU want, a custom designed especially for you. Whether you want to experience the best of Wanaka rock, would rather a personal guide or if you are an experienced climber but didn’t bring a climbing partner or your gear with you; our team will be happy to show you the best routes suited to your ability and objectives.
