Crag features

Now known as The AGS Rockwall. Near the city centre Mt Eden Quarry offers a good range rock climbing on columnar basalt. While there are some bolted routes the majority can be protected naturally or top-roped using the bolted anchors provided. The Quarry is divided into two climbing areas the "Long Side" and "Short Side".

Located in the heart of Auckland with parking just a few dozen meters away. The crag has a "short" and "long" side a short walk apart.
