The southern hemisphere's first and only Via Ferrata climbing system (literally translated as Iron Way). We have a variety of routes with varying length and difficulty that snake their way up the western aspect of Queenstown Hill. Each route is expertly equipped with fixed rungs and cable systems of the highest standard.
This activity allows anyone of moderate fitness to experience the excitement, exposure and scenic beauty normally only enjoyed by people with climbing skills. It is a great introduction into climbing and no previous experience is required. The climbing routes cater for a wide range of abilities and also this activity can be undertaken in most weather conditions, so you'll never be disappointed.
A guide fits you out with all the equipment you need to enjoy the views from the stunning cliff tops. Learn the safety system of lanyards, karabiners, cables and rungs. This is a fantastic safe experience that can be enjoyed by people of all ages.
We will give you a climbing harness, helmet and gloves to use in some of the colder winter months. We will also provide you with a highly qualified guide and transport from downtown Queenstown. Rock shoes are also provided on Rock Climbing trips. For mountaineering trips we provide all the technical equipment including ice axe, crampons and avalanche transceiver.
The Minimum age for Rungway and Abseiling is 8 years.
You should bring a pair of outdoor shoes - you don't need hiking boots, a pair of running shoes is perfectly suitable. Make sure you dress in comfortable clothing that is suited to the weather on the day. Dress in layers as all of our cliffs are north facing and even on the coldest days it can be very warm once you get into the swing of things. Also bring along some sunscreen and water.
