Easby View Quarry

 

Map Reference: NZ591097 

This small quarry is about 320m S.S.E of Captain Cook’s Monument and few metres below the main footpath which slants down the hill (a small holly bush above the quarry is a useful marker). The routes reach a maximum height of 5m, and offer a few lower grade problems in a quiet spot with a superb outlook. Many of these areas have been climbed on over the years but there were no recorded ascents until Tony Marr revisited in February 1999 and recorded his ascents. Only the best of the many variations are included here. The climbs are described left to right.
