Many thanks for your co-operation while we host this international tournament.

 

Reaching a dramatic 12 metres in height, our wall features a wide range of climbs, catering for complete beginners through to expert lead climbers.  

  • Over 20 climbs available for leading and top roping
  • Vertical and overhanging rock features
  • Friendly, qualified instructors
  • Kids' climbing courses
  • Equipment hire.

If you've never done it before, our qualified instructors are happy to show you the ropes. They will help make hanging out on the wall easy!

We have climbing harnesses and shoes available for hire if you don’t have your own. 

Adults are required to obtain a Rockatipu Climbing Wall Belay Licence before they can climb without an instructor or with children. These can be obtained during the instructor session times below and are valid for 12 months. All children must be accompanied by a responsible adult who holds a Rockatipu Climbing Wall Belay Licence.

Experienced climbers will find challenges in our vertical and overhanging features, and there are 12 lead climbs available for experts only.

Kids climbing courses are available during the school term. Group bookings are available all year round for both kids and adults, with a little advance notice.

Rockatipu Climbing Wall is a great option to keep in mind for a kid’s birthday party.
