Climbing, fitness and yoga

Uprising is one of Australasia’s largest bouldering gyms. Climbing’s profile is exploding worldwide and one of the most popular sectors of this ‘next-generation’ sport is bouldering. Safer and simpler than traditional rock climbing, bouldering is the climbing of small rock formations (or artificial rock walls) without ropes or harnesses. Bouldering is a social activity and this new facility is purpose-designed to support and encourage the growing climbing community in Canterbury. All year round. Check ahead for availability.
