Unique Features And Strengths

A small bouldering wall useful to know about if you live nearby.


A small bouldering area in the bush, with sharp, pocketed sandstone providing a few problems and a short traverse.

Access Issues

The crag is in bush parkland, close to part of the Two Valleys Track (TVT) in Canterbury council area.


From the end of Unwin Street, Undercliffe (which is walking distance from Tempe train station), continue walking along the track past some outcrops on your right for about 50 m. Step around the fence (the normal walking track), and after about 25 m further on, past the huge pipes, turn up hill for about 20 m to find the crag tucked away in some bushes.
