Port Chalmers Quarry

Type
Altitude
60m

A collection of sport routes within the urban area of Port Chalmers. The crags are at the back of a small public garden/ park with a view of the port and the town. Just 10 minutes drive from the centre of Dunedin.
The Chakrata Wall, The Great Escape, Army Route and Bob's Way are protected by bolts of a trustworthy nature. Elevator and Ren, as well as the separate Stimpy anchor were rebolted in September 2015 (Stimpy rebolting ASAP), but all routes climber's right of TGE are historical in nature, and may not be safely climbable without significant rebolting effort.
