This crag has a long, but relatively unknown history. Earliest records indicate at least three lines were done back in the 70s, one of which was more than likely The Jolly Logger. A few more lines were done in the late eighties and/or early 90s, by which time the original bolt on One Bolt… had appeared. Gary Kearns and Gabriel Lincourt rediscovered the crag in 2005, and over the next couple of years, and with the help of a few others, made a concerted effort to clean up the crag. Much of the gorse was cleared, (and then cleared again using Vigilant the second time), anchor stations installed, and a number of good quality lines made climbable (…again?).
The crag is exposed to northerly winds. It is pleasantly sunny on a nice day, with reasonable shelter from southerlies.
The area is now part of Saddle Hill Reserve, which was recently acquired by DOC. Park your car clear of the gateway. Leave the dog at home.
Just before Little River turn right and take the Okuti Valley Road. After about 4 km turn right on Reynolds Valley Road, which is a steep zig-zig shngle road. Drive up Reynolds Valley Rd. Park clear of the metal farm gate at a right hand bend. Climb over gate and walk up farm track towards the crag, which is marked as point 680.
