Where Theme Park meets Climbing Wall!


Clip ‘n Climb is the most exciting new concept in indoor climbing to have emerged in the past decade.  It is 100% pure Kiwi and was developed here in Christchurch.

Clip ‘n Climb is incredibly popular with families, friends, schools, youth groups, sports teams, works socials and corporates alike – there is no minimum or maximum age.

In all there are 38 different climbs for you to enjoy.  We have automatic belay devices on every climb,  just clip them onto your harness and away you go. When you are finished just let go and the device will gently lower you back down to the ground – it’s as simple as that!

Session Information

All Clip ‘n Climb sessions start ‘on the hour’ and include a 15 minute period for getting on harnesses and listening to a safety briefing.

This is followed by 45 minutes of full on climbing.

For those thrill seekers make sure you also try out the Vertical Drop and the Leap of Faith! (subject to staff availability)

Make sure your group wear comfortable loose clothing and closed toe shoes – sandals and jandals are not suitable for climbing.

Climbing Courses

Many young people find that they really enjoy climbing and would like to learn some good techniques.

Good news, we have an after school term programme at Clip ‘n Climb called Tree Frogs, which runs on a Tuesday (4pm-5pm) for children aged 7-9 years and helps develop their climbing really quickly.

As their skills develop, they can progress onto our large climbing wall – click here to check out all of our climbing courses.

Community Fundraising

Fundraising doesn’t have to be unhealthy!

Are you uncomfortable selling chocolate and lollies to raise funds? Well now you can raise a healthy profit for your group, club or school and have good healthy fun at the same time.

The Clip ‘n Climb Fundraising Programme is designed to assist schools and not-for-profit organisations with their fundraising efforts.

Applications from individuals will also be considered, provided the funds are to be used for a suitable purpose, eg. travel to a sports or cultural event.

How the programme works

Your group can invite guests to an exclusive session(s) at Clip ‘n Climb at the Y Adventure Centre.

You sell 40 tickets per 1 hour session, the cost of a session is $150, and the remaining funds are for your group to keep.

How can I book?

Sessions are available on any week night, and during the weekend – check available dates online here

What do we provide to assist ticket sales?

We will provide you with pre-printed tickets with the date of the event and session times. There are different tickets for each session.
