Description 

The Coromandel may not have as many routes as the Waikato region or Lake Taupo, but it has more stunning multi pitch sport routes than anywhere else in the North Island. Castle Rock is the most popular areas, with many bolted routes 3-5 pitches in length, great rock and even better views. Tairua, a new area under development has the potential to be even better than Castle Rock if it is full developed. Buck Rock (listed as part of the Waikato region) is reasonably close to the Coromandel, and also has bolted multi pitch lines.

The Coromandel is renowned for its natural beauty, and is also a popular destination for other outdoor activities like tramping, canyoning, kayaking and beaches.

One of the longest rock routes in the north island. Fully Bolted.Pitch 1 - 21Technical climbing up the facePitch 2 - 19More positive holds than pitch 1Pitch 3 - 16An interesting traverse pitch.
