Uprising Boulder Gym is Christchurch’s premier bouldering facility, a gym which challenges your mind as well as your muscles. Haven’t heard of bouldering before? Learn more about this exciting, liberating form of climbing here.
We opened in June 2015, with an ultramodern bouldering wall which allows our creative routesetters to design challenges unparalleled in diversity and excitement.
We want our wall to fundamentally change the way you think about indoor climbing.
In addition, our downstairs training area has weights, hangboards and cross-training equipment making it much more than just a climbing wall – a revolutionary fitness centre.
We want this gym to be the heart of climbing in Ōtautahi, and our location on Tanner Street, on the block of The Tannery retail and hospitality sector, sets us in one of the most vibrant parts of the city. We have agonised over every angle of wall and detail, and we are unbelievably excited about it.
This is your gym, your wall. We want this to be the place you have fun, meet friends, get strong.
Uprising Boulder Gym is also the home of the world-renowned Uprising Climbing Holds, and you can find prototypes and test shapes here that exist nowhere else in the world!
