    What to Expect
    Meet your Guide at Basecamp Wanaka Climbing Centre, or we can pick you up from your Wanaka accommodation if you wish. We'll begin with a short briefing and you'll be outfitted with all the equipment you will require. 

    Your guide will take you to the most suitable climbing location for the group, choosing from a range of climbs where you can learn the essentials of lead climbing. Enjoy the sun, the mountain views, and the company of your group as you climb together on the doorstep of Mt Aspiring National Park.

    This course covers;
    • Belaying
    • Quickdraw/runner placement – how to correctly place the quickdraw on your harness and the rock.
    • Clipping methods – efficient ways of clipping the rope into the quickdraw
    • Safety considerations – when to clip, spotting, rope management, buddy checks

    We also offer an advanced lead climbing course, where your prior skills are acknowledged and built on including safe rope changeovers and self-protected abseiling.

    We'll spend the maximum possible time on the rock, so you get real value from your half day with us, learning the skills you need to keep yourself safe while lead climbing. After 3-3.5 hours of climbing, we head back to the vehicle, and we return you to our meeting point, for a well-deserved rest.
