Whekenui was the first area to be climbed on at Whanganui Bay, and standing in the parking lot itís no wonder why Ė the cliff towers over the rest of the bay. A long, tall section of climbable rock that hosts a ton of climbs of various sorts, from short powerful sport climbs to long multipitch trad.

Getting There

Thereís a skull staring straight at you as you get ready to climb a runout chimney. Comforting. The story told to me went someth...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
