Please refrain from climbing outside

Due to the ongoing spread of Covid-19, please abstain from climbing outside.

At UKC we are all climbers and we understand the strong urge to be outdoors as the weather is finally improving, but we feel this is no longer socially acceptable. You can read our statement here.

We have suspended the UKC Logbooks Top Ascents and Conditions pages and we will no longer accept ascents dated from 23rd March onwards. You can still upload your historic ascents.

Crag features

A 100m long crag of 8-15m high cliffs of solid rock bound the lagoon beside the waterfall. There is potential here for a lot of DWS. A low level traverse was completed all the way from the campsite to the waterfall on good rock just above the water. Much of the water is deep, a couple of jumps were taken from quite high, but the water is very dark and so difficult to see the true depth.

On the FA of Tino rangatiratanga, a band of extremly loose and dangerous logs and vegetation was passed near the start of the traverse; if this was to fall whilst passing, the consequences would likely be severe. However, the area has seen significant floods since the FA, so the danger may now have passed.

Approach notes

Access from Haruru Falls motel/campsite if you're a resident (the owner is very friendly and helpful and it's a good if basic campsite), or from the falls themselves.
