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.

Great Line! Needs a second anchor. Old draws are dangerous, don't clip. (add your own draw to hanger) Excellent bouldery climb with good holds and fun sequences up the tufa's and limestone run through the headwall.
|3||Power of the Pink||25||6|
Originally had anchors lower down, but these were shifted further up and the grade bumped to 25. With further ascents this seems to have now settled at 24.
Climb the prominent arete right of 'Muzzifunsta'. Much easier after the second bolt.
Climb the face to prominent features out left. Mantle to anchors.
