X-Wye, Queenstown’s Best Rock Climbing Festival - 24/25/26th January 2014 @ The Find,QT & Wye Creek

X-Wye 2014 Poster

This year we are kicking the festival off with a ”Short Film” festival sponsored by SteepEdge, followed by Climbing clinics with the best local guides, Climbing contests in the Creek, Food & Prizes at “The Find” and of course our signature event, the awesome, “X-Wye Climbing Marathon”!

The marathon is a fun team event (teams of 2 to 3 climbers) where people try to climb as many routes as possible. Routes are worth so many points depending on location, height, difficulty. You can score more points if you wear fancy dress and there will be some other more fun ways to score more points on the day. Anyways really good fun! Then we will celebrate at The Find, have a feed and present winners (…and non winners) with some great awards & prizes!

Sign up here by downloading the registration forms and emailing your completed forms back to us at queenstownclimbing@gmail.com
