Gower is only a short (3km) drive from the Wharepapa Outdoor Centre, and the crag is located next to Smiths Rock. After gaining permission from the owner Martin Rupert 07 872 7739, travel along Seafund Road and park 50m before the first bridge. Go through the gate to the left and walk down through the farm remembering to close the gates behind you, until you reach the first rocky outcrop.
