Overview

Basecamp Wanaka Climbing Centre offers a standard rock climbing wall with top rope, lead and bouldering inside and out, as well as Clip 'n Climb; the newest thing in family entertainment. The standard rock climbing wall is just that, a standard climbing wall. Clip 'n Climb consists of funky climbs and uses automatic belays, so no one has to manage the rope.The standard climbing wall requires 2 people, unless bouldering. The person managing the rope needs to be 13 years old or older. You can come any time and stay all day if you like.Clip 'n Climb runs on one hour sessions, starting on the hour. Bookings are highly recommended as space is limited in each session. Call to make a booking.Closed toed shoes and comfortable clothes (no skirts) are required for both sides.

a small bouldering room is hidden at the side. Not very high, and a bit of a hodgepodge of climbs without much structure. The rope climbing area appears to be great with lots of creative activities available for kids.More
