Awesome technical climbing on superb rock. Mainly sport with some trad lines as well.


Slab, roofs, bulges, cracks or face climbing. Waipapa has it all.

Access issues

Pipeline Wall, Cracks Wall, Lakeside Wall and Carpark Wall are currently CLOSED for climbing. Do not climb on these cliffs.


Drive towards Mangakino from Wharepapa South for about 20 minutes. Park at the dam.
