Even thought we were at different levels Loz was able to provide us with many challenging routes to keep us both busy for the entire day. Loz was happy to let my boyfriend lead climb and taught me how to lead belay - excellent bonus! Thanks Loz for an amazing day!

He's a great guy and the routes we climbed were fun and challenging for both me (beginner) and my boyfriend who is more experienced. Thanks for making us enthusiastic for rock climbing Loz!

We enjoyed our snoeshoeing, it was beautiful being up in such a prisitne, winter wonderland. It was very peaceful crunching through the snow and a cool, unique experience for us.

Received outdoor sport climbing instruction from Emily. Clear and concise instructions but with an emphasis on learning by doing. Relaxed but attentive. Wanaka is a fantastic place to learn to rock climb and Basecamp Rock Adventures are a great company to go with.
