Crag features

The Doctors Point area has three separate crags, each with its own character, with 50+ routes developed. Potential is limited only by your imagination and your concept of what is climbable rock! The crags face north, getting all-day sun in winter. Coalition Crag in particular is very sheltered, and has Dunedin's best winter micro-climate (and the warmest sea-water).

Good topo here.

Approach notes

From Dunedin, take the Northern Motorway to Waitati (19km). Turn right at Waitati, then next left and follow the road to Doctors Point (3km from motorway turnoff). The carpark is notorious for car break-ins.

Railway Cutting Cragclimb up the grassy slope to the railway line, which traverses the hill about 75m above the beach (10 mins walk).

The Arches Cragwalk east along the beach from the Doctors Point carpark. Most of the routes cross the delta-shaped slab 50m before you reach the Arches.
