Christchurch's Uprising gym is always a great leg of the NIBS circuit. There is a large local base of keen and talented climbers and it is also a popular round to travel to from other parts of the country, with the lure of Castle Hill Basin nearby promising visitors a double treat. With the best route setters in the country calling Uprising home, there is always a really technical and challenging set for the climbers to test themselves on and the climbing, especially in the finals, is often of the highest quality of any bouldering competition in New Zealand.
