Explore the Wanaka classics or further afield, from the lofty backdrop of Aoraki Mount Cook and accessible alpine rock of The Remarkables to multi-pitch classics at Chinaman's Bluff.

Family Adventures
No experience is necessary and we tailor our rock climbing adventures to suit you; whether the whole family is new to it, you're all climbing at different levels, or if only the kids want to climb - we promise you an outing that will be just the right mix of challenge and fun!

In addition to rock climbing we also offer alpine trips in the Southern Lakes region:
