Description

A very distinct landmark in the area and obvious for climbing.
Sunny most of the day.
Same Schist as the rest of the area but this block is toppled and the climbing a little different from the rest of the surrounding area and a little sharper.

Getting There

From Wanaka-
Take the road to Glendhu Bay, continue past the Bay and 5km later you'll see the Tomstone.
Continue driving past to the first car park on the left. This the Main Cliff parking area. Walk back to the tombstone.

There are a couple of good steep sport routes on the back side. they go at 20 and 23; although the 23 is mostly grade 20 with only a couple of feet of "impossible" climbing. Jan 27, 2010
