Mt Maunganui beach, as seen from the crag.


"The Mount" is a great climbing area (albeit not an actual mountain). It is easy to get to, sunny most of the day, and for the most part the rock quality is excellent. However it doesn't rival the quality and quantity of the major crags in the north island. A printable PDF of the crag can be found here (

Getting There 

Head to the East side of the mountain and take the summit track. After about a fifteen minute walk, this will get you to Cables Wall
