Stays dry in the rain. Better quality rock on right side of crag.

5 minutes up usually wet creek beds. After exiting Homer tunnel, en route to Milford Sound there is a sign for "theChasm 400m". 50 m before this sign there is a small bridge. It is best to drive to the chasm car park, and visit it if you haven't. Then drive the 450m back towards the tunnel and pull of just after the small bridge on the left. One track on the Milford side of the bridge leads to the left wall. The other on the Homer side leads to the right crag. It is possible to walk between right and left sides along the base.
Used to be mixed climbing. There are still some excellent trad routes, however many mixed routes seem to be now fully bolted. Access rungs were placed in 2012 to provide quick access to the left side of the wall. Once on the wall it is rare to come to ground until the end of the day. However don't pee up there as it never washes away.
