2 day Intro to Rock Climbing & Abseiling
This is a 2 day introductory to rock climbing and abseiling course.
This is two-day outdoor rock climbing and abseiling is course delivered at two of Christchurch’s premier climbing areas.
In this course, we will introduce you to the world of outdoor top-rope rock climbing. We will look at personal safety, good belay techniques, and communication.
This is a popular course for those who have limited rock climbing experience and would like to get some professional guidance. This course is appropriate for people that have no experience and would just like to give it a go.
Where is this rock & abseiling course?
We meet at Albert terrace in St Martins, Christchurch on the first day. From the road end, the climbing area is just 5 mins walk. Day 2 the location will be decided by the group and your instructor. We often use Cattlestop climbing area, pop up climbing area and Rapaki Rock on the top of the Port Hills (30 mins from Christchurch city center) for the second day.
Travelling from out of town?
Lots of people travel to attend our courses and we like to make it easy. Transport could be tricky to organise if your flying or coming from out of town. Talk to one of our friendly team about our pick-up/drop off service.
What gear do I need?
Nothing, we have everything available to hire if you don’t own climbing gear, easy as.
If you planning on bringing your own gear or borrowing from a friend here’s an idea of what to bring (We’ll send a full gear list upon booking ).
- Climbing helmet
- Belay/abseil device (ATC)
- Climbing shoes or snug fitting sports shoes
We recommend holding off on purchasing any new climbing gear until after the course (except climbing shoes). Why not buy new stuff? So you can optimism on your instructors’ knowledge and recommendations.
