A paradise for boulder sport/rock climbing fans. Everyone will find something here. Especially a mantle.

This place is a must stop. If you like exploring and rock climbing, it is the spot to be. Could have spent all day there, so plan on at least a couple of hours to really enjoy it.

Massive boulders bordering a pretty large area. Can easily spend an afternoon or more here. Pictures do not do them justice, much larger in person.

This was a great ramble through spectacular features and allowed us to chose how long we spent there. Movie set material.

Amazing rocks to walk, climb or just lay down on the grass to enjoy the view. A real New Zealand must do!

Beautiful views of the mountains. Fun to climb around the rocks. The best, not many tourists! Pretty much had the place to ourselves. Really interesting rock formations.

Walk around through the rocks. The formations look different when you change the perspective. Take your time and climb some of the rocks to view even better.

Amazing large rock formations on mountains, great to climb or just wander around for hours. A brilliant sight to see.
