Altitude 42m a.s.l
Calum Hudson did some work here in 1992–93, but it was Steve Carr who almost single-handedly developed this crag in 1997. The crag is nearing the end of a makeover as of 2018. Many routes have been extended to the tops of the walls - often being aggressively cleaned and retrobolted. Many new sport routes have been opened up. Caution needs to be exercised with some holds as rock that may appear stable can sometimes flake off under pressure.
Good topo here.
Take the road from Port Chalmers township over the hill towards Long Beach. Turn off left at the ‘Osborne’ sign soon after passing Purakaunui School and descend to Purakaunui Inlet. Drive around the left side of the inlet, passing the turnoff to the Osborne settlement (hidden up the side road) until reaching a carpark at the road end.
A lake has recently formed on the track that leads to the crag and has become impassable so you will need to park at the road end and walk ten minutes to the crag. It is best not to leave any valuables in your car.
