Crag features

Panama Rock, also known as Kellers Peak, is a trachyte lava dome fed by an obvious feeder dyke. The rock is compact and doesn't take natural protection well.

Good topo here.

Approach notes

From the Akaroa Summit Road, turn off a kilometre east of the Okains Bay turnoff along Camerons Track. After about 3 km, turn on to Lavericks Ridge Road, and the crag is reached after 2 km. There is a walking track to the east side of the crag, accessed from the saddle overlooking Le Bons Bay.

No Access Issues

The crag is on a private conservation reserve owned by the Josef Langer Trust. The Trust is sympathetic to climbing and hopes to see the reserve used for educational as well as recreational uses. An initial protocol has been agreed for NZAC members such that the NZAC representative should be contacted in advance of any visits by private climbers. Currently the NZAC representative is Lindsay Main, who can be emailed at: lindsay.main (at)
