Sky Castle – pre-public opening day! 16 Oct


@aotearoaclimbingaccess and @raglanrock are working together to open Sky Castle for Public climbing access on the 1st of November, so to have a bit of fun and raise funds at the same time for we’re organising a pre-public opening climbing day on the 16th of October!

Sky Castle has a mix of sport climbing, trad climbing and bouldering on quality limestone so bring gear to suit.

If you’re able to come along, or are keen to support ACAT, please consider donating. Funds raised will be used to help pay for the newly excavated parking area, signage, stiles and a toilet so your contribution to the Sky Castle fundraising page would be greatly appreciated!

Note: Register for this day out on the facebook ticket link. Numbers are strictly limited to 40 people with a maximum of 10 cars (4 people per car) so registration is essential, get in quick!
NOTE: As we won’t have instructors present, this outing is only suitable for climbers with some previous outdoor climbing experience.
– Boulderers must have boulder pads (NR has 2)
– Sport / trad climbers must have their own gear. Ideally book in pairs so that you have a belay partner coming with you.
