Nigretta Falls, Hamilton

  Quick Stats
Climbs *** ** * Hardest Longest Rock Access
5 0 0 0 19 20m ? 3 Mins

Limited climbing on dubious rock alongside a waterfall that is one of Hamilton's main tourist attractions. To get there head west out of Hamilton for 3.6kms and turn right down a well sign posted "Nigretta Falls" road for 9kms. You'll be presented with a nice picnic area, toilets and obvious access to the falls / cliff. For some routes it is necessary to wait for the river to dry up somewhat. No camping is permitted.

The best climb is apparently "Life By The Drop" 15m grade 19, which takes the small clean, right facing corner in the middle of the main wall, right of the water fall past two bolts to a ledge and crack finish.
