We’re stoked to share that Northern Rocks has been named a finalist for TWO categories in the 2Degrees Auckland Business Awards: Best Emerging Business and Excellence in Marketing!
After almost five years of doing what we love – creating an inclusive, world-class climbing experience for all – it feels pretty rad to be recognised as a leader in Auckland’s business scene.
Thank you to our incredible community for making this gym come alive, and to each and every one of you for contributing to the vibrant home away from home we call Northern Rocks. We owe it to you all.
Winners will be announced on the 5th October.
