Base Camp Wanaka is a really cool climbing facility! Especially enjoyed the automatic belays, allowing the whole family to climb at the same time (well, everyone except me and Peter, since I was keeping watch over Peter – they didn’t want to let 1 year olds climb…). The kids could more or less clip and unclip themselves and try a bunch of different types of climbing walls. In this pic we see Dave beating Sia in a timed climb, while Jenny and Emma are off to the right on their own walls. Peter is standing below gazing up in envy.When you want to go down, just let go and hover down nice and slow with the automatic belay – makes going down as fun as going up! I wonder if any of the climbing centers around Stockholm have automatic belays.
