This new 2021 edition contains all the routes and crags developed since the 2014 edition, such as the return of Jimmy Cliff, plus corrections and access changes.
Welcome to Wānaka: a holiday destination of choice for Kiwi families, adventurous travellers, New Year revellers and discerning rock climbers.
So what’s all the fuss about? From humble beginnings as a temporary distraction for frustrated alpinists waiting out the weather, Wānaka has evolved into a modern, multifaceted and compelling playground for the beginner and obsessive rock athlete alike.
With magnificent snow capped mountains and lush rain forest in the west, deep blue lakes and golden tussock country in the east; the Wānaka region offers a fantastic climate, a vibrant scene and a high standard of development.
The crags boast over 900 routes, ranging from bouldering on the lake front to multi-pitch adventures on the spectacular fringes of Mount Aspiring National Park; from pleasant scrambles to desperate thuggery. Whether you want sunny faces or leafy, shaded walls—you’ll find them, all set into a stunning montane landscape.
