There are three routes on this crag near the Ohakune Mountain Road, although they will probably need a scrub before repeating. There is loads of room for more.

Access: 

At the 10km mark on the Ohakune Mountain Road a cliff is visible in the bush to the east. Park at the Blyth Hut–Waitonga Falls track carpark. Right at the start of the track, before the footbridge, drop down to the riverbed and walk downstream for 20m before turning left up a small sidestream. Walk upstream for 10–15 minutes, until the cliff can be seen on the right. Head up through the bush to the base.
