Custom bouldering wall design and build for Fergs on Queens Wharf in Wellington.
Fergs wanted a large international competition style bouldering wall to complement their existing lead wall facility, while also providing a stand-alone attraction. The wall needed to also incorporate features for all levels of climbers in order to introduce new people to the sport.
Uprising Industries provided a contemporary and functional solution, incorporating slabs, aretes, bulges, an archway, pillar, training area, and large overhanging comp-style wall — all with seamless transitions, in a modern and innovative bouldering wall design.
The install was completed in two parts, with the first (blue) wall completed in June 2020, and the comp wall extension (green) added in May 2021.
“It was a pleasure to work with Uprising Industries on creating a world-standard and creative bouldering wall. The project was conceived, planned and executed in three months and on budget. Remarkable. The true testament is that the users are delighted with the structure and bouldering options and we are running approx 20% ahead of budget”.
