Whakapapa Gorge Rock Climbing
Trad with mountains in the background
A mountain crag only 15 mins from the car park. A mix on trad and sport climbs up to 2 pitches. Amazing scenery and great exposure. During the winter months there is too much snow and ice for "rock" climbing. Check out classics such as Moko (20), The Full Monty (23) and Ape to Angel (24).

From the Top of the Bruce road walk east towards Meads Wall and then turn north up Te Herenga Ridge a short distance before sidling down on a rough track across the eastern slope. The track peters out at the top of the crag; continue northwards above the cliffs down to the end of the bluff line and then back up under the crag.
Weather station 2.5 miles from here
