DescriptionWeekend foray to explore a lesser known trad climbing crag which is 15 mins out of Timaru.
Getting ThereI plan to leave by Dunedin by 8am on Saturday (7th December) and arrive at the crag around 10:30 - 11am which leaves rest of the day/evening for climbing. We would then climb on Sunday morning (8th December) with options to leave around 1pm or slightly later depending on when people want to be back in Dunedin (2 1/2 hr drive approx.).
What to ExpectRelaxed weekend exploring a crag that is a bit off-the-beaten track but still has interesting climbing and an easy 10 min approach. This crag only has trad routes and most of the climbs require knowledge of rigging tree anchors as only a small number of the easy trad lines have bolted anchors.
GearAccommodation: Plan is to stay Saturday night at Timaru Top 10 Holiday park (10 min drive from crag) which has camping sites from $40 per 2 people and cabins starting at $70 per 2 people. This campground has a full kitchen and showers ect. so you would only need to bring a tent (if tenting) plus bedding/sleeping mat. This campground has plenty of availability for camping so we don't need to book ahead but if you wanted to book at cabin then you would need to organise this in advance yourself.
