Access issues inherited from Paines Ford

Tread lightly as land is DoC-owned and access is not guaranteed. Stick to the formed tracks, respect closed areas, and consult with the locals before conducting any new routing work.

Ethic inherited from Paines Ford

Mostly sport climbing with the occasional thread. Clearing vegetation is frowned upon and may lead to closures. Abseil or lower off: Don't walk to the top of cliffs as it trashes the vegetation.

3 bolts to anchor

Once you get through the scuzzy stuff at the bottom the rock is beautiful, solid and high friction - it leads to some thought provoking moves!

Re-equipped in 2016 and a bolt was added to protect the run-out at the top.

Used to have an alternative grade 18 start in the squeeze chimney, now missing its bolts.

The start on the arete is still there to mystify climbers though.

Continue up the crack above to an anchor on the ledge.

Used to be a fairly dodgy trad route, now fully bolted for your pleasure. Climb the corner with the wide crack all the way to the top of the headwall.
