Approach notes

The crag is accessed via Mt Horrible Rd. about 15km from Timaru. A couple of km's after the road turns to gravel, look for a pond on your right. and a young wind break to your left. There is a gate at the start of the wind break, do not use use this one but drive up to the next gate. There is plenty of room for parking off the road. Enter the paddocks(left side of road), head south toward a mature windbreak at the other end of the paddocks. After passing through a couple of gates, you should beable to make out the single large Pine tree that stands in a large gap in the wind-break. Rap from the better of the two blocks under this tree to access the crag. leave the rope. you will want to re-use it. As you rap down, China Boy 14 is to your right, in the dihedral. At the west end of the crag ,there is a tunnel under the large capping roof of Future Fantasy. access and egress can be gained here but squeezing packs through can be tricky. Another option is to leave via the east end of the crag (keep walking past *Wild Man 19),which turns into a series of large steps that are easy enough to get over with packs.
