Bouldering area almost completed!

We felt it was about time we shared some of the excitement that has our whole team totally amped for the new facility. A lot has happened since our last post. The main wall construction is nearly complete, with most of the climbing areas just needing matting and holds. No big reveal of the finished sections just yet, but here is a little something for your imagination.

Introducing, The Ship

From just off vertical to an outrageous overhanging prow, this freestanding feature is just a snippet of what we have been working on (spy between the timber and you might spot a little more). It’s huge, it’s curvey and it’s a real expression of what the design and wall building crew are capable of, the finished product will be a mindblower.



Rad, and that is just one feature! As you can see there is some blank space to fill…not telling you exactly what will be found in there just yet. But, think big and expect training tools never seen before in NZ.

What else has been happening?

Holds! The creative wizards at Uprising Holds have been carving a whole new range of big shapes, and our first shipment of holds from overseas arrived this week. More on that next week!


There is still plenty of work to be done, with our focus moving towards the completion of the fitness and training areas, yoga studio and cafe.

Stay tuned via our BlogFacebook and Insta as we reveal new holds, new training facilities and a new look for Uprising.

Thank you for all the support so far, the psyche from the Christchurch climbing community and beyond has been incredible.
