Description 

The Coromandel Peninsula is a region renowned for its natural beauty. Hidden away amongst the misty rainforests and pristine golden beaches are a few crags, mostly multi pitch routes up to 125m/400ft in length. It may not be a climbing mecca like Wharepapa South or Lake Taupo, but it does have some quality climbing well worth doing. The Peninsular is also a popular destination for other outdoor activities like tramping, canyoning, kayaking and beaches.

Fantastic multi pitch sport route with exposure that makes you think you are in the Arapiles.Pitch 1 - 50mA fantastic slab line alternatively know as "Sleeping Boy Catches No Fish" that is well worth climbing in its own right. Quite technical for the grade with less than positive slopey holds, so you have to rely on your footwork. Crux is getting to the first bolt (a little harder than 5.10a/18 in my opinion). Wonderful views and nice exposure with the valley dropping off below you. Well bolted ...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
