Sebastapol Bluffs Rock Climbing
Sebastapol Bluffs are located in close proximity to the NZAC Unwin Lodge. Most of the best quality lines are the bolted slab routes; the quality of rock on the crack climbs can be variable. The best place to start and orient yourself with the crag is the Twin Cracks Wall.
Alpine Guides have produced a brochure which is a helpful source of information, availible from Alpine guides at the Mt Cook village or Unwin Hut.
The cliffs are located on the west side of state highway 80, between Unwin Lodge and Mount Cook Village.
