As you walk around the left side of the small hill you may be forgiven for
thinking you have come to the wrong place and that there's no rock climbing
here. But wait, an outcrop ready to climb and with potential for anyone wanting
to bolt a new route or two.
|At Secret Crag the Limestone is cool to the
touch and the area quite secluded, making it a nice place to just get away
and climb. If you are able to figure out the moves to gain the main face,
Secret Crag could offer a few more difficult rock climbing routes.
|The climbs in this area are more Boulder
Problems than free climbs and the strange Limestone shapes provide for a
few challenges. There are many more good problems in this area but some
that are too high to just boulder safely.
|Situated on the top of the small hill is a
large formation has been bolted with a few good climbs. The rock has a
multi-level dimension to it with climbs starting in some strange places,
including one that starts in a shallow cave.
Drive north from Whangarei, through Karmo and on about 7km until
you reach the Waro Reserve on your right. Refer to the notice board for access
and other information.
