From late June through early August the hut at Black Peak, Wanaka, offers some of the most quickly & easily accessible frozen waterfall ice climbing in New Zealand. The ice-climbing site at Black Peak is not easily accessible by the general public which means you can enjoy your ice-climbing without competing for space on a route. Each evening return to our cosy private hut, at 1800m on the mid-reaches of Black Peak (2283m). No tenting! Snuggle up into a warm bunk at the end of the day.
Whether you are already a strong rock climber and want to transition to this new medium, a mountaineer who wants to get more experience on steeper ice, or you are a fit adventurous novice who is enthusiastic about learning a new skill, then our ice climbing course is for you!
