Metaphysical Wall

(4 routes)

The far left end of the Main Cliff and home to some of the newer, harder things at Waipapa.


Having got to the Main Cliff follow a rough track down to the far-left hand end of the crag till you come to an obvious right facing corner crack system capped by a roof, this is the line of Millennium Madness. Three metres to the left is a small picnic area and a short corner crack system, the start of Super C Ellery and Rotovagus. From this point drop down rope steps, cross a small gully and climb the ladder on the other side. Directly above this point is the line of Honey Bee.

Utopia 26 20m
The intriguing left-leaning groove/corner feature with tenuous moves keeps you thinking all the way to the top of the wall.

Immortality 26 20m
A difficult proposition up the blank and rounded arete feature at the start leads to a big rest and then another crux on the steeper wall above.

Valhalla 28 20m
In Norse mythology, Valhalla was a majestic hall for viking gods and those who died in combat. If you like a little combat, this feisty route will oblige. Start up the corner and stroll your way through to the launch pad beneath the bulge. From here you'll need to steel yourself for a tricky crux through the steep section and sustained climbing through to the anchor. Equipper: Jamie Baron

Honey Bee 18 12m
The first part is nothing special but the route is worth climbing for the second half. Start as for Valhalla but go right of the corner and up the interesting blocky wall to finish.
