Shakey Town

Type

Slightly overhanging to vertical rock, the southern aspect protects it often from rain. The rock here is very suspect and must be treated with caution.

Access

From Mt Cook Village start as for the Red Tarns track, but instead of crossing the bridge head up Black Birch Stream for about two minutes (stay on the true left). It’s the same place as the Shaky Town Traverse.

Tricky start move leads to fun climbing on some of the better rock on the cliff, although that doesn't say much. There is a half way anchor often used for SAR training.
