to Dec 1

Coronet Crag Bolting Workshop

One of Queenstown's longest serving, most loved and incredibly accessible crags, Coronet Crag, is starting to show it's age and will serve as a great venue for discussions, demonstrations and application of modern bolting techniques and best practices.

If you're interested in learning what it takes to create a route and how to bolt, come on down. We're going to be climbing, drilling, sawing, scrubbing, bolting, chaining and many other constructive verbs to polish this jewel again.

3 days, after work / business hours - 6pm until later.

Native Tree Planting @ Wye Creek

Lets plant a few new natives in the lower carpark!

This will give us a a lot more shade in a few years, plus being a wonderful gateway to our favourite climbing area.

Jardines Boulder Fest

A day of bouldering and fun in the sun to mark the start of the climbing season. Come along, meet new friends and reconnect with old ones.

The club has worked hard to ensure perpetuity of access to the Jardines Boulders and owners have been very generous to grant this with the help of QE2 / Open Spaces.


The new fancy new Jardines signage will also be installed in the new carpark location and it would be great to see as many members and friends as possible to celebrate this. The new signage has routes, boulder names, trails and much more, marking an important milestone in the establishment of Jardines as a bouldering venue.

Between the fun and bouldering, QCC will also be doing some maintenance and would appreciate any help:

  • Clearing boulders from prickly bushes and maintaining access trails to boulders.
  • Planting native trees!
  • Installing the signage.

Trad Workshop @ Gorge Rd

Trad Workshop @ Gorge Rd

Brush up on your trad techniques or just want to expand your playfied? Come join us, we'll have plenty of gear and instructors at the Gorge Rd crag on Saturday 24th October 1pm - 6pm.

"Trad" climbing is a style of rock climbing in which a climber places all gear required to protect against falls, and removes it when a passage is complete. Your mountain adventures are no longer limited by where people have already put bolts in place, you can explore everywhere. Some of the gear involved includes nuts (triangle shaped wedges), cams (pulling on it makes it expand) and slings, amongst many others.
