Basecamp Wanaka Climbing Centre offers a standard rock climbing wall with top rope, lead and bouldering inside and out, as well as Clip 'n Climb; the newest thing in family entertainment. The standard rock climbing wall is just that, a standard climbing wall. Clip 'n Climb consists of funky climbs and uses automatic belays, so no one has to manage the rope.The standard climbing wall requires 2 people, unless bouldering. The person managing the rope needs to be 13 years old or older. You can come any time and stay all day if you like.Clip 'n Climb runs on one hour sessions, starting on the hour. Bookings are highly recommended as space is limited in each session. Call to make a booking.Closed toed shoes and comfortable clothes (no skirts) are required for both sides.

It was a rainy day, so we decided to do something different and we are glad we went to Basecamp. It was very welcoming and easy enough that anyone can do.

We went there with children aged 10,11,13. All have enjoyed the experience. All spots were booked out, so we went quite late, after we did all day time activities with teh kids. Excellent time to rest while kids are having fun!
