Tee Face

(5 routes)

It is called Tee Face after the prominent ‘T’ in the centre of the face.
This crag offers few opportunities for placing pro and is better suited to top-roping.
Descent is by climbing upwards slightly and back into Hongis. Its proximity to Tahurangi Lodge and sunny aspect make this an excellent top roping crag for beginners.

Start 2m from Captain Hook to the left. Climb direct up the line to a ledge, then over the overhang to the right (don’t use the face to the left for foot holds). Great jugs on top of overhang.
