About
Designed, built and run by a team of Kiwi climbers and yoga teachers, Uprising is home to a huge bouldering gym, yoga studio and a fitness gym all under one roof. There’s even a cafe serving our own signature blend of locally roasted coffee, and a pro shop for apparel and gear. Bouldering at Uprising is an indoor adventure sport activity. It’s fitness in disguise, challenging and fun for both the muscles and the mind.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had a fabulous time. Bouldering has got to be my least fave way to climb (because in short you aren't attached to anything that will save your life lol) but even I found climbs that I could do!

Miss 12 thought it was going to be a pretty short visit (as I usually can't complete anything) but she was super impressed they had boulder problems at my skill level lolololol.

The staff were fab, the food was great and the climbers were friendly, all in all, a great way to wile away a few hours (and burn some calories to boot!)

Grandsons birthday party held there.

Plenty to keep them occupied on the climbing walls, not matter what level of ability.

Followed by yummy pizza and surperb chips.

Highly recommended

Love this place. Great problems, super friendly and relaxed atmosphere. They make the holds on site so are always bringing out rad new shapes and volumes. The best place to climb indoors in New Zealand.

Newest (as of now?) and I think the next climbing gym in Christchurch. Nice amount of room so you aren't waiting for other people to give come down off the wall, and a good variety of types of climbing routes. And even if you are stuck waiting, the cafe in the middle is a fun amenity in the gym!

Love Uprising! Great set up. Lots of different levels to cater for a range of abilities. New climbs always mean there's a new challenge.

I love this place! Staff are friendly, the cafe is sweet and most importantly the climbs are amazing. Varied and different levels, overhangs, slab, whatever your heart desires. Huge space! With a good little gym inside too. Yoga classes and massage on offer too. What more could you ask for really!
