Guided Climbing and provate trips In Wanaka


This was the perfect birthday party for my 13 year-old daughter. Loves to climb and shared a picnic and rock climbing at Hospital Flat. Loz was very clear and patient with the kids that hadn’t climbed but also made sure my experienced daughter was challenged and nailed her first outdoor lead climb. Magnificent day had by all. Highly recommended by me.

We did a half-day climbing outdoors with two children aged 6 and 8 years. We were all beginners. Loz was very friendly and explained very well.  It was really great. The children and I were thrilled. We really recommend this activity with this provider!

Other Outdoor Climbing Options

  • Intro To Rock Climbing

    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.

  • Abseiling

    Experience the thrill of stepping off a cliff edge into space… under the control of a safety rope of course!

  • Lead Climbing

    Push yourself mentally and physically by learning to lead climb in New Zealand’s premiere (and most scenic) sport climbing venue.

  • Multi Pitch

    A true climbing journey, for some of us its not enough to climb just one rope length up, we want to go further.

  • Trad Climbing

    Ever wondered about climbing where there are no bolts? The answer is Trad Climbing.
