Access issues inherited from Ngahere Drive

Climbers should be aware that even though they are climbing in a reserve, the bush directly above the climbs is on private land, and the track that leads over the top of Groove Wall, the Main Face and Starlight Wall is directly on the reserve/private land boundary. Please be respectful of the owners (no loud noise, rubbish, etc.).

Homeowner has installed a small fence blocking access to the base of the climb. Please do not climb this until access rights can be verified and owners permission granted.

First slab you encounter when approaching from Ngahere Drive

Belay off tree

Right of Crinkle Slab

Up the wide crack on the arete. Single bolt anchor.

Downhill from Starlight Wall

Easy chimney to first bolt. Thought provoking moves take you right past another bolt and around the corner to a nice arete. Go up the slab past a rusted bolt, a couple good bolts and a peg.

Two options to belay: chains or newer glue-ins a little to the right.

Cool sling thread feature on the arete

Start up the flake for full value (#3)

FFA: Paul Hersey, 1995

There are some bolt on Main Cliff right of "The Crow". Presumably some mixed trad routes. Unknown route names, but they look relatively new and shiny(?)

Walk towards Hospital Road from Main Face
