Rock Climbing in Boat Ramp Crag, Cromwell, Otago New Zealand
Before the formation of Lake Dunstan and the construction of Clyde Dam, Cromwell was known as The Junction, due to the confluence of Clutha River with Kawarau River. This used to be a gold-mining area. The climate is considered to be continental and dry, with hot summers (up to 35°C/95°F) and cold winters (the temperature can drop down to -8°C/17.60°F).
Boat Ramp Crag (situated on the eastern shore of Lake Dunstan, close to the boat ramp) is a good destination for rock climbing lovers who prefer something closer in the area.
Some of the climbing routes are: Deep Fried, Dog Food, Ever Rude and the Rat, all at an altitude of 22 ft /7 m. Experience the ultimate adventure and feel the thrill of climbing using metal rungs, learn how to handle the ropes and dedicate your mind and body 100%.
Note: Grades: 13-21. You will need 3-4 bolts.
