Macu Picu Area

Access issues inherited from The Shady Side

Most climbs are equipped with their own DBB, which is the preferred method of descent to avoid raining terror down on to the tourist track. If scrambling around, please take extra care to avoid kicking down loose rock and other debris.

Climbing straight off the Tourist Track should be looked at as a privilege and not a right. Access could very easily be taken away. Please be good custodians for our sport by leaving enough space for walkers when belaying, and if bouldering - have a spotter manage your mats &/or keep them well off the main path. Preferably brush your holds of chalk once finished to maintain natural aesthetics, and for other climbers who follow.


Approach initially as for Moorhead Buttress, steeply up the slabs to the base of the crag. Continue up past the main area on the upstream side, via a couple of fixed ropes. Once the old pipes are reached - veer left across the gully to reach this compact isolated area - almost directly below the overhead powerlines.
