Pitapata Wall

(5 routes)

Pita Pata Wall is hidden in the bush high up above the Punakaiki River. It was developed in desperation on a rainy day -Bullock Creek was flooded and most other areas of rock were wet. It’s wee walk up to the crag, but it stays dry in any wether and the views out to sea are stunning!

Access: 

Park just before the 2nd gate. Head right up through a grassy clearing and look for a marked track in the bush. Cross under a wire and up to the base of a chossy cliff. Follow this around to Pitapata Wall.
