Mt Iron

Part of

Mount Iron has become an easy-access local climbing scene. These cliffs offer good atmosphere and a quick pump for the after-work crowd, or a full pump for climbers wishing to push their limits. The crags are within walking distance of town and stay mostly dry in the rain.

The cliffs are reached from the east side of the Wānaka–Mt Iron–Albert Town walking track. Use the DOC track access point 100m from the end of Old Racecourse Road, which is off Aubrey Road near State Highway 6. Please refrain from screaming, ranting or yelling profanities: there are suburban houses just below the cliffs.
