Description

A beginner-friendly trag and bouldering crag with most routes under 10m high. Now features a soft rubber ground cover. Permission needs to be obtained before climbing. You can register here: http://aucklandclimber.org.nz/quarry.html

Access issues inherited from Mt. Eden Quarry

Climbing the long side or short side during school hours (8am-3pm Mon-Fri during term time) 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.

Approach

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.
