Description

The Bronx sector at Turakirae Head is well known (at least in local bouldering circles) for its impressive cave - the Bronx Cave - which has a number of radically overhanging test pieces. However, the area is also home to a wide variety of easy & moderate problems, some of which rank alongside the very best problems in the region. All told, the Bronx is home to 160+ problems between VE and V11. The compact nature of the Bronx area makes it a great place to climb, with problems of all styles and grades in close proximity. And while the rock quality varies from boulder to boulder, the better rock is some of the best around, offering amazing texture and variety for those who appreciate a quality hold when they hold one.

Access issues inherited from Turakirae Head

You must park your vehicle in the public car park that is 300m before the end of the public road. From the car park, walk along the road and over the Orongorongo River Bridge. Access to Turakirae Head is via a covenant on private property. A fenceline defines the extent of the covenant. Visitors must keep to the seaward side of the fence.

Approach

  • Approx. one-hour driving distance from Wellington city
  • Approx. 25 min walk distance from the car park
