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".
