Split Persona Wall

(9 routes)

An area where the climbs are not as they appear to be...
Hidden and set back, just 20m from road this crag is so close you could throw a rock at a climber from your car. It's located just east of The Watchtower or 5 kms past the pull out to the Upper Bluffs. Parking is near the river immediately after the cuttings in the road. Look for a white wall in the trees to the south. The track is up a steep bank on the left hand side of the cutting. Schizoid is a classic test-piece.

Hidden away in the forest is this gem. The steep main corner feature which goes to the top of the crag, great gear with a bolt and a single ring when gear is inadequate (ring is useful to re-thread when cleaning route) Double bolt anchor. Double ups 1,2 & 3 camalots are handy. Has been used for aid climbing practice and goes neatly at A2.

On the right hand end of the crag starting on top of a jumbled blocks. Climb the slab past one bolt to the right facing crack. Double bolt belay right of finish. A good little number.

Pretty much a linkup but with some sweet tree and rock climbing if you're into that type of thing. Climb the first four bolts of Treehugger but instead of climbing up the tree and over the lip continue up the corner stemming between the tree and the rock until you finally have to commit back to the rock. The corner takes good finger sized cams and wires. Continue up Schizoid to bolted anchor. Single rack up to #3 should suffice. Classic of the genre.

Spin (Silent partner is nervous) 18 16m
Right hand side of Split persona Wall. A seam or shallow crack which has been cleaned. This should be about the last possible route on this wall.

Follow vague ground trail on from split personal wall then cut back and up on to a big ledge. Obvious corner at far end. FFA on gear (rap and clean) bolt added to protect crux (crucial placements tricky to onsite and check, especially with shorter arms)

Climb 'Spin' to its anchor, then climb onto the ledge above (protected by one bolt). Belay off the small tree. Layback your way over the bulge and jam your way to a DBA. Superb quality, it's a pity it isn't longer.

The Grievance Tree, open project. Located on the wall 60 metres to the right and down past the main 'Split Persona Wall'. Climb on gear through cracks to reach the first bolt at the base of a steep, extremely thin crack. Clip the bolt, and commit to a hard and dynamic boulder problem on small holds. Finish up the route on spaced big holds through the overhang. Couldn't give it a grade. The boulder problem in the middle of the line is potentially V7+
