After a great idea from Tim to send me to Poison Creek and thank to Joy & Arthur to shorten their trip a new easy route appears close to Luggate…Thanks Whitney for the great work you did too!
Everything is bolted, 3-4 pitches of 18-20m, easy grade, possible to do with mountaineering shoes if the climbers can deal with the 3 first meters of the pitch 1 😉
It’s a great place for instruction courses and beginners.
2 minutes walk for the approach!
To be really nice it needs more brushing, a wind storm and heavy rain but it’s already more than OK to climb the route.
Check the pictures below for the route description…
Have fun! X
Pukekowhai Road with strange Pukeko’s
A bit of logging to set up a nice access
First ascent, Whitney looking for the best line
Lots of brushing, logging, throwing rocks, getting dusted
Rope access work on one rope without helmet…
A bit of drilling/bolting
Job is done. We worked so hard…
… that we broke some tools & clothes…
… but by chance we didn’t run out of beers !!!
