There are many cliffs, bluffs and escarpments in Tongariro National Park that offer great climbing opportunities. Having said that, there are not your typical drive up pocket pulling sport crags here. All the climbing areas require a reasonable approach but the stunning mountain setting more than makes up for it. There are a variety of climbing areas from the hard sport meca of Whitefalls to the multi pitch trad lines of Mangatepopo valley.
