When climbing, adhere to the New Zealand Alpine Club’s codes and standards and follow these simple guidelines to minimise your impact.
- Respect any temporary restrictions on access to climbing sites. These are identified by signage at site and/or alerts on this website.
- Use established access points and tracks only. Additional tracking is not permitted.
- Limit your activities at a crag to the cliff, its top and its base to minimise damage to surrounding areas.
- Do not damage trees or other vegetation, including by using them as belay points.
- Do not add to fixed bolting equipment on the cliff.
- Do not brush moss or lichen from the cliff unless absolutely necessary for safety reasons.
- Brush off chalk tick marks.
- Always be aware of hazards to others, especially at busy crags and/or crags with loose rock.
- Be considerate of other groups, individual climbers and other recreational users of the area.
