Description:

Look for the only bolts on the entire wall. This line consists of mostly smallish jugs and pockets. You can top-out about 10ft above the last bolt, which isn't difficult. But if you'd rather play it safe, set up an anchor that hangs over the edge which can work as a bolt to clip into for a safer top-out.

3 out of 5 stars Good for laps, when it's not busy

Use the bars on the top to set up a top rope, or use the two lead bolts and top out at the bar. Good place to teach belay.

I went out to Eden Park for the first time because I'm a climbing addict and the weather was slightly permitting. Although this route isn't very difficult, it is slightly technical because it consists of almost no large jugs - just smallish pockets, biggish crimpers, and medium-sized slopers which need to be felt-out amidst many things that look like good holds.

Whilst it was nice to get an outdoor climb in, I will mostly likely never return to Eden Park for climbing. This one lead route can't be any more difficult than every other possible line on the wall. Plus, it was extremely marshy and wet on the ground (probably because it's an old resevoir . . .)
