Welcome to Queenstown Climbing Club in New Zealand. We’re an incorporated society based in Queenstown, NZ, set up to represent climbers in and around the Wakatipu basing. We’ve been established for over 4 years and have active relationships with the local community, trusts, Department of Conservation and local landowners.
Queenstown is one of the adventure capitals of the world, and has the most concentrated and diverse areas climbing areas in New Zealand from short family friendly sports climbing to long multi pitch alpine routes and accessible ice climbing. Have a look around the site to find out more, and if you’re a current member, head on over to join our active Facebook group.
Congratulations to Thomas Van Den Berg for his great pictures of Michal Karnik climbing the Living Tree in Little Babylon which got many ‘likes’ by the local climbing community. Although his pictures are (a bit) outside of the Queenstown region they still deserve a big thumb up. Thomas wins this Macpac hat worths $30!
