Wanaka's Original Climbing Guides.
Wanaka Rock Climbing was founded in Wanaka in 1998 and ever since we have been providing top quality rock climbing guiding and instruction in Wanaka and further afield to travelling climbers as well as the local climbing fraternity.

As an overview of our business we offer guided rock climbing in the major climbing areas of the south island; Mt Cook, Wanaka, Queenstown, Glenorchy and Fiordland. This ranges from Introductory courses to climbing with experienced climbers and even Multi-day alpine rock climbing trips.

At Wanaka Rock Climbing we center our business around two things:

High quality instruction and guiding.
For us this is the most valuable aspect of our product. In the outdoor world quality is gained by experience and good training.
All of Wanaka Rock Climbings guides are qualified through the New Zealand Mountain Guides Association and/or the New Zealand Outdoor Instructors Association.
Our guides have undergone standardised training at an industry level.
Wanaka Rock provides professional development for our guides and expects they keep up a excellent level of personal interest and training.

Environmental & local initiatives: Wanaka Rock Climbing is owned and operated by individuals who have a big interest in protecting the natural environment the we visit for work and play. Check out the many ways the WRC is working towards a better community/planet on our website.

Climbers first: We are not only guides and instructors but Climbers first.The mountains are where we work but also where we spend most of our free time. Let us show you what the Crags and Mountain have to offer.

Teaching background: All our full time guides come from a Educational background. This helps to promote a culture of learning progression that other guiding companies lack.

Perpetually "STOKED" Staff: Our guides love what they do and love sharing it with others. I hope you're ready to get climbing because we definitely are.

Adjusted trip to abilities of customers. Nice guide but could have been a bit more encouraging.
