Devil's Gap

(64 routes)

This is a significant crag with predominantly trad routes, as well as few high-quality sport routes. Generally there are bolt anchors at the top of most climbs. It suits a fairly calm day best, and can be very pleasant in winter.

Type: 
Crag
Altitude: 
600m
Walk time:

Head to Little River, and climb Kinloch Road to gain Bossu Road. Turn left at the junction of Kinloch and Bossu then take a right turn onto Gap Road. Without blocking the track park near the gated track with the NZAC sign. An easy 5-10 minute walk past the gate and later through some denser vegetation will place you at the base of the main cliffline on the left side.

THE CRAG IS NOW OPEN ON WEEKENDS, UNDER SPECIAL CONDITIONS.

There is a booking system which requires climbers to sign in with their names and vehicle registration for each day of climbing. This is monitored by a group of "gatekeepers". who will interact with the farmer. There will be a cut-off each weekend for the coming weekend on Friday evening at 7 pm. Any registrations after that time will not be notified to the farmer, and therefore do not have permission.

AFTER A LENGTHY CLOSURE DUE TO THE THOUGHTLESSNESS AND STUPIDITY OF A NUMBER OF CLIMBERS WHO HAVE REPEATEDLY LEFT GATES OPEN, AND/OR BEEN FOUND ON THE LAND WITHOUT PERMISSION, THESE MEASURES HAVE BEEN TAKEN TO ENSURE THAT CLIMBERS COMPLY WITH THE FARMER'S REQUIREMENTS.

DO NOT CONTACT THE FARM MANAGER

It is not uncommon for farming activities to require the farm to be closed to the public. This may occur because of lambing, stock movements, helicopter spraying, or other reasons.Any closures will be notified here.
