Climber at top of pitch 5, Archibald Baxter


One of the longest rock routes in the north island. Fully Bolted.

Pitch 1 - 20
Technical climbing up the face

Pitch 2 - 19
More positive holds than pitch 1

Pitch 3 - 16
An interesting traverse pitch. Keep heading right and up. Make sure you extend your clips to reduce rope drag. Finish on small ledge

Pitch 4 - 21
Probably the hardest pitch of the climb. Steep and sustained

Pitch 5 - 19
Easy ground to the top (trending right)


Furthest left line on Quiet Earth wall. Abseil in from top of quiet earth, or walk around to the base (refer to freeclimb guide for more details).


Fully bolted
