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.

Strong and balancy through the crux sequence, with a decent low wire then two very dubious old pitons as protection. There is more gear available though.

One compulsory smear to glory. Shame it isn't longer. Place good gear, there have been accidents, though the new bouncy rubber base is rather better than the old grass with hidden rocks.

Tiny protection, dyno to match, go for it!

Harder than it looks. Make an off balance move into the middle of the groove and out to the arete, protected by a quite small nut.
