Joyce Bay/ White Wall

(6 routes)

This is a gem of south facing cliff, that is easily spotted form the DOC car-park as you look across the bay. It is the clean white wall at the end of the scrubby spur, (Point Robertson).

Type: 
Wall
Altitude:

Aspect: 
South
Walk time: 
30min
Access: 

Approach via rocks from Joyce's Bay. One section of exposed but easy scrambling
leads to a good platform below the cliff. The exposed section can now be bypassed
by fixed ropes in a track cut through flax over the bluff. Don't go if a more than
moderate swell is running. All routes are approx 15m, have double ring anchors and
some need gear (cams to #4). Excellent rock.
