Little Babylon

International > Oceania > New Zealand > S Island > Southland > Milford

Description

A beautiful crag on excellent stone with several single pitch hard sport routes, with a couple of multi-pitches as well. The names of most routes are painted on the base of the climbs.

Getting There

Approach is the same as for Babylon. Coming from Te Anau, go 1.7 km past the Donne River bridge. There is a pull-off to park, at the very beginning of the pull-off area there is a trail that leads up into the jungle towards Babylon/Little Babylon. Sometimes the trail is marked with a small cairn. Take this trail up through the jungle for about 10-15 minutes to reach Babylon. Once you have arrived at Babylon, head to the right and continue up a trail through steep jungle for about 15 more minutes until you reach Little Babylon.
