The AGS Rockwall (Mt Eden quarry) short side is temporarily CLOSED while the school is putting in an all weather floodlit turf. The Rockwall is also undergoing some renovation - the vegetation and loose rock on top is being removed, mesh laid down, anchors replaced, etc. Please do not climb at the short side until further notice. The long side remains open (helmets and registration required).

The short side is temporarily CLOSED - see its description for details. The long side remains open, but climbing during school hours (8am-3pm Mon-Fri) is currently prohibited.
To climb at the quarry, permission must be obtained from the NZAC. Fortunately, this is simple enough, just sign up online here: http://aucklandclimber.org.nz/quarry.html
Helmets must be worn at all times, including when belaying or bouldering.
Access to the Short Side, which is near the corner of Clive and Normanby Roads, is from the Grammar–Windsor hockey turf on Normanby Road.
