Description 

Beautiful gorge with opportunities for both bouldering and larger cliffs for roped climbing. Lots of opportunities for first ascents.

The rock is a conglomerate, which is well featured but not particularly well cemented together. Climbs are not well traveled and you can expect loosely adhered pebbles to pop-off. The landings around the boulders are relatively flat and easy to protect with a crash pad.

This is probably the best and most accessible climbing area in the vicinity of Port Moresby, but is by no means a world class destination.

Getting There 

Drive from Port Moresby towards Varirata National Park or Sogeri. The boulders and cliffs can easily be seen from the road.

Climbing Season

For the Oceania area.

Weather station 8.1 miles from here
