Summary

IMPORTANT - SEE UPDATED ACCESS REQUIREMENTS (September 2020)

Description

Tall pocketed ignimbrite cliffs here ranging from 20m to 35m. Flying Cow and the Chunderossa buttresses are the most popular sectors with fantastic climbing ranging in grade from 15 to 26. Some of the bolting seems close but the rock can be quite soft. Most of the other cliffs here are equipped with old naked bolts.

Access issues

For Biosecurity reasons, follow this new procedure for permission to climb at Sheridan. No exceptions, don't blow it for everyone.

Entry is only permitted to Rock Climbing groups, no others.

You must have clean footwear that hasn't been worn anywhere where there have been cattle within the last 24 hours. This includes other local crags.

Abide by all NZ Alpine Club rules (see the sign left of the Seafund Road gate).

EACH TIME you enter the property, send a text message to 027 527 1744 with:

1 - Your full name and place of residence

2 - The number of people in your party

3 - Another form of contact, ie email, home address, etc.

IF NO TEXT IS RECEIVED YOU WILL BE ASKED TO LEAVE.

Sending the text message acknowledges you and your party will abide by all the above rules. There is no longer a logbook to sign. A QR code is available but this DOES NOT replace the requirement to send a txt as above.

Do not block the gate, park well back along the road! Leave gates open or closed as you found them. No dogs. This is private farm land so must be respected.

Any queries, phone 027 527 1744.

Approach

OBTAIN PERMISSION FIRST (see access issues). Park on Seafund Road near gate, but not in front of it. Walk straight across the paddock towards the obvious pillar and down thru another gate to the crag. 7 minutes walk.
