Stays dry at hide tide.

Access issues inherited from Ti Point

The crag borders private property so please respect this.

Take note of tide times before you head out as the base of some routes around the Arch area and ‘The Fang’ are below the high tide line. There is an access track around the back of the crag which may have to be used at high tide and also provide access to the top of most routes.

Descent notes

Many routes have had ram's horns added.

Grade Route

Between two chimneys is a slabby wall. There are a lot of large pohutukawas at the top of this part of the cliff and this route is below the eastern most tree.

Climb easily past the first bolt to the ledge. Move right past the second bolt and up the outside of the chimney, past the third bolt and up into the wide crack.

The bolts then continue up the left face to the new rams horns anchors.

FA: Graeme Dingle & Ariaan Dingle, 1998

Start at the lowest point of the chimney and climb easy ground into the chimney proper. Up the chimney to easy ledges, then the rib above.

Shares ram's horns anchors with 'Slap and Tickle'.

FA: John Watson, Bryan Dudley & Brian Alexander, 1972

Start up the thin crack, pulling onto the face with some big moves to the break at about half height. Move right and up to the top.

Shares anchors with JP Superdog

A broken hand crack on the left of a slabby wall. Climb past a small tree up to a large one and double Ram's horns belay.

A slabby wall with Titanium Rams Horns for belay, behind the large block and finishing at the same pohutukawa as ‘Slap and Tickle’.

The chimney finishing at a large tree.

FA: John Watson, Bryan Dudley & Brian Alexander, 1972

Four bolts and tree belay. Follow the two almost horizontal bolts traversing right until reaching the arête and finishing as for ‘The Appendix’ past the third and fourth bolt. Graeme Dingle, Brandon Daniell and Andrew Batten, 2004

FA: Graeme Dingle, Brandon Daniell & Andrew Batten, 2004

Climb the arête and up over the bulge, 4 bolts and tree belay. The crux is well protected and a hidden jug will prove to be your salvation.

FA: Graeme Dingle & Fiona Joyce, 1996

Climb the slabby wall to the ledge at the base of overhanging section placing a wire or cam on the way or clip the first bolt of ‘The Appendix’. From the ledge clip the bolt on the headwall then move up past this to clip the last bolt on ‘The Appendix’.

FA: Graeme Dingle, Brandon Daniell & Andrew Batten, 2004

Climb the face directly to the single bolt on the steep bulge. Stay right on the bulge using a sketchy heel hook to gain better holds. Press out mantle to finish. This line has probably been done before.

FA: Marco Lefebvre, 1 Feb 2019

The short corner just before the grassy bank, there is a chain link hanger on the left face at about half height. Climb the crack or face on the left until the chockstone, over and then the left face or squeeze up the crack.
