Bobo Wall

(5 routes)

Bobo Wall is a 25 metre wall astride the main ridge, facing east. The wall can be accessed from the south following the main descent track, which cuts across the base of the wall. Alternatively abseil one of the routes. There is now a scramble descent track to the left (North East) of the ridge, just before the low angled slab finish of "Jungle Jim". You can access the base of some of the climbs that finish at the main abseil anchors - most of them are current projects as of 24 March 2019. It's a 30m abseil from top to the track that continues down.

A short slab and wall that starts directly from the main descent track at the very south end of Bobo Wall. Start directly below the first bolt and pad up the slab to the overhang. From the protruding block pull up and left past two bolts to the arete, and then walk carefully up to the anchor.

It's the genuine Banks Peninsula experience. Find Darph Bobo's rap station and go 15m right to another rap station. Abseil over. Or take the descent track before Karaka Wall and follow round below Bobo Wall to the base of the slab. Climb strarts 12m up technical slab past 5 bolts then follow rib up the featured headwall.

This climb is by itself, starting on a lower tier and is accessed by abseiling. From the Karaka Wall and Method Man, continue down the ridge to it's end where you have to scramble up to access the top of the Wall. Head up a little and then down and right about ten metres to the anchor for the route which is below the top on it's own ledge. Abseil to the big grassy ledge where the route starts (approx 25 metres). The anchors don't have rings, so it may be a good idea to take a separate rope for the abseil.

Use JJ's access gully from the ridge. Traverse along the base of the wall, past the cracks, onto an exposed ledge (there is a single bolt on the corner to use as a safety), head around to your right to another belay anchor and the start of the climb. It shares it's first 2 bolts with the project on the left (shown in yellow above). Then branches slightly rightwards into the increasing difficulty. Aim towards the vertical feature, climbing through balancy, technical terrain, and then up to top out at an anchor chain.

MIXED LINE Scramble down the gully to the left of the ridge before the low angle finish (2 bolt anchor). Start in the corner/crack system, working up until you're into the wide crack on good holds. Then shuffle/chimney your way up to the first bolt. Climb onto huge flake and head over right to the slab and an easy finish up this to the ring bolt anchor - A CLIMB BEST DONE ON LEAD
