For the kids

“Keep your chil­dren climb­ing our walls, not yours.” That’s the gen­er­ous ad­vice of the ver­ti­cally vo­ra­cious folk at the Wanaka climb­ing cen­tre. It’s the per­fect wet-weather op­tion for the whole fam­ily. There’s a sport climb­ing wall for the per­pen­dic­u­larly pumped, and a clip‘n’climb area for the in­ex­pe­ri­enced/ lily-liv­ered (a cun­ning au­to­matic be­lay de­vice takes in the slack as you climb and then low­ers you gently to the ground -even three-year-olds can do it). And if any in your group is not en­thralled by up­ward mo­bil­ity, they can sneak off next door to Ruby’s Cin­ema & Bar for a bit of bou­tique celluloid. Clip‘n’climb ses­sions last for an hour; book­ings are es­sen­tial. Base­camp, Wanaka Climb­ing Cen­tre, 50 Cardrona Val­ley Road, (03) 443 1110, base­cam­p­
