The focus of this course is using natural (trees, boulders etc )and placed protection (Cam’s, nuts, hexes, etc) as runners and anchors. This is a popular course for people with some climbing experience and would like to have a go at climbing using placed protection. You do not need to be climbing at a high grade to go trad climbing.

This course is also suitable for people working towards a NZOIA Rock1 or NZOIA Rock2  awards.

 

Where do you deliver the trad climbing courses?

The trad climbing courses are delivered at two of Christchurch’s best trad climbing locations, Rapaki rock & Gibraltar rock. We meet at the Sign of the Kiwi cafe at the top of Dyers Pass road on top of the Port Hills (20 mins from the city center).

 

Gear & equipment

All trad climbing gear and equipment is provided for this course. if you have your own or can borrow the gear that you will most likely end up climbing on we recommend that you bring it along. We will send you a full gear list once you have completed your booking.

 

How many people will be on my course?

We believe this type of training is better when the group size is small. Our Trad climbing courses run at a maximum group size of 4 clients to 1 instructor.

 

Traveling from out of town?

Most people travel to attend our trad climbing courses and we like to make it easy. We offer a free pick up service from all of the city center hotels & backpackers and we’ll even drop you back at the airport if you flying out after the course.
