Summary

Bask in the magnificent views from the top of a route!

Description

You will need up to 18 quickdraws to complete the routes. A couple of the routes require trad gear but most are sport.

Climbs are on the lower and upper tier

The bivvy cave is the biggest clean area, the twister section is even tighter for space.

Access issues

Owned by DOC and haven't had any problems so far, but don't give them a reason to restrict the area. Please take all rubbish and anything you take with you; only leave your footprints behind.

Approach

Navigate to (-37.3027174, 175.7529359). Look for a small culvert (drain pipe) and road marker 917. The track can be a bit hard to find here, but it is across the river and marked with pink tape (refer to the photo).

Scramble down to the river and pick up the track: look for the stepping stones across the river. You will be able to follow the pink ribbon and reflector tags for about 30 min to the top. The track is very well marked, but gets steep and loose in places.

When you get to the top of the access track, left takes you to the Twister Section and right takes you to No Fly Zone.

Where to stay

Campsites in the Coromandel, or accommodation in Thames/paeroa

Ethic

Can stay up at the top of the mountain but only sleeps about 2 or 3 people max. It is quite exposed and small, so tents won't fit. Take all rubbish with you. Check local fire bans in the area before starting a fire.
