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.

The Peninsular is also a popular destination for other outdoor activities like tramping, canyoning, kayaking and beaches.
