The clmbing on Wellington's west coast consists of adventure bouldering and adventure trad climbing.
The Boom Boulders are a nice collection of hard smooth blocks complete with steep angles, 50 minutes’ walk from the carpark.
The yellow-topped vertical boulder 30m back along the beach to the south.
A low undercut boulder against the hillside, south of the main boulders.
The cliffs at Boom Rock rise straightr out of the water on Wellington’s rugged west coast, on the edge of Cook Strait. It is quite possibly the most friable crag in Wellington. Other climbers than the two parties listed below have been sighted climbing here, but there is no recorded information.
Access: Walk north along the beach from Makara, and traverse past Boom Rock itself to the base of the tallest wall (calm conditions are needed for this). Descent requires climbing steep farmland to a point where you can safely get down into the gully south of the ridge.
