The Coromandel Peninsula is a region renowned for its natural beauty. Hidden away amongst the misty rainforests and pristine golden beaches are a few crags. It may not be a climbing mecca like Wharepapa South or Lake Taupo, but it does have some quality climbing well worth doing. The Peninsular is also a popular destination for other outdoor activities like tramping, canyoning, kayaking and beaches.
