Limestone climbing just south of Te Kuiti. There sheltered climbing for those wet days, and more exposed climbs for enjoying the sun.

Helmets are strongly advised, due to the likely nature of rock fall.


Cross the bridge at the car park. Follow the track right and then double back up the hill. Turn right at the cairn and follow the steep track to the 'Coliseum' approx 25mins.

Where to stay

There is free camping in the car park. There are bathrooms and fire pits available.
