Global Climbing Day Sat 24th August
Uprising is teaming up with The North Face to get people into climbing and raise money for the NZAC.
We have a whole page devoted to this one, visit it here.
None! Most people using the facility will bring their rock shoes, chalk and a chalk bag or bucket. If you don’t have them yet you can rent or buy them at reception. Because you are protected by thick crashmats there is no need for ropes or harnesses.
Comfortable clothing that allows for ease of movement is fine, gym clothes are a popular option. Closed-toe footwear is essential and we have climbing shoes available for hire ($5) that help make the bouldering easier.
For your safety, rings and loose jewellery need to be stashed away before you climb.
Our facility aims to have a range of challenges suitable for all, from people who have never tried climbing before right through to elite athletes.
Kids are great at bouldering! To help keep them safe, those under 13 years need to climb under the direct supervision of someone 16 or older.
