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

Britten Crag is situated just outside Christchurch New Zealand, it is predominantly a sport crag but has a small selection of trad lines.

Good topo here.

Approach notes

Access from Longridge Drive, off Mt Pleasant Rd.

Park in Parkridge Place, walk south across the paddock to the pine trees and cross the fence. Mount Pleasant crag is on your left. Britten Crag is on the tier below and further along. A small cairn marks the start of vague sheep tracks - follow these south and slightly downhill until a more defined path is picked up past a 'Climbing Awareness' sign and where rungs are downclimbed. The Zoo is just tucked around the next corner on the left.

There are no comments from visitors to this crag.
