Working farm-contact landowners before climbing MORE INFO >>>


A small sport and trad crag has been established on the same farm that houses the Airstrip (Waitomo's best known bouldering area) and Stubb's Wall (an area predominantly used for guiding school groups). Although this scenic and secluded crag is seldom visited, the rock lacks the dust that plagues untrammeled routes at many of the more obscure King Country climbing areas.

Getting There 

The Stubbs farm is located approximately 15km from the Waitomo Caves village towards
Marakopa. Drive past the Awatiro driveway and the Te tiro driveways, and down a hill past Waipina road on your left. 1.8 km past Waipina road, as the road begins to straighten out, is a wooden gate off the road to you right. Park here and follow the track to your right, heading over the rise of the hill and into the next valley over. It can be quite difficult to find. The crag will be an outcropping of limestone on the left.

Climbing Season

For the North Island area.

Weather station 8.5 miles from here
