An aesthetic crag in a tranquil location, with some sustained climbs worthy of classical status.
The crag consists of the Main face, Tangarahu outcrop to the left, and the stepped down wall
with ‘The Temptress’ to the right. The overhanging nose is 15 metres high with the face rising
in height back to the longest route of 21metres. The rock extends out from a native bush
covered hill and the quality is good apart from the initial soft and dusty few metres on the main
face. A set or two of wires and a range of cams is recommended for the few trad routes.
From the east side of the nose, left to right.
Frog Pond is on the property of the Stubbs family, and is currently leased out to Greg Scott.
Greg is happy for climbers o be on the property as long as permission has been granted from
the stubbs family. He also expects the usual considerations with respect to his livestock and
the closing of gates.
Before entering the property , permission must be sought from
Ann or Alister Stubs (07) 878 8594.
The stubbs farm is located approximately 15km from the Waitomo Caves village towards
Marakopa. Drive past the Awatiro driveway and the Te tiro driveways, and down a hill past
Waipina road on your left. 1.8 km past Waipina road, as the road begins to straighten out, is
a wooden gate off the road to you right. Park here and follow the track in to the crag (see
