Every year more and more people are being introduced to rock climbing through NZAC courses.

Courses Overview Upcoming Alpine Climbing  Skiing Touring


For many local sections, rock climbing courses are the highlight of the summer season. If you are ready to try this exciting sport, we’d love to show you how!

More experienced climbers have the chance to take their lead climbing skills to the next level with our Multi-Pitch & Transitions Course.

If you aspire to take on the world’s great rock faces, a Peak Performance course in Big Wall climbing will prepare you for serious vertical terrain.

National Youth Rock Camp

This epic camp is for young climbers who wish to take their climbing to the next level outdoors and progress towards climbing independently. Top professional instructors volunteer their time every year to help keen youth to learn rock skills safely.

The age range we feel would most benefit from this opportunity would be 11 – 15 years old. There is a minimum age limit of 13 for belaying outdoors, so priority would be given to the older climbers in this range.
