Lead Climbing Weekend


For those who are interested in the next step on from top-roping. We will be driving down on Saturday back to Waipari to learn to lead climb. We will continue honing our skills on Sunday, potentially reviewing our abseiling/anchor setting skills for those who attended those courses too.

Anchor Setting Evening


This course will cover how to build top-rope anchors and other anchors that will be useful as your climbing progresses.

Time & Location: Thursday 6th April, 6 pm - 9 pm (Hopefully won't take the whole time slot), City Campus

Abseil Evening


This course will cover how to safely clean outdoor sport routes and get your gear off the climb.

Time & Location: Tuesday 4th April, 6 pm - 9 pm (Hopefully won't take the whole time slot), City Campus
