Guide

The Ning Nong boulder is a small, esoteric venue located on the south-eastern coast of Palliser Bay, east of Lake Ferry at Te Humenga Point. It’s really only worth a visit if you are in the area!

Access: Take the Cape Palliser turn-off from the Martinborough–Lake Ferry road. After about 23km you’ll see the boulders on the left, just over a fence. If you get to Ngawi, you’ve gone about 9km too far.

Grade V6
A hard pull gets you to some okay holds, then an off-balance snatch puts you in sight of the mossy topout.
4
King of the Bongos
Grade V3
Climb to the rounded laybacks and then . . . you guessed it, a mossy topout. Great moves, nice holds. Almost worth the trip out.

Project
Grade -
Big bold moves above an awful landing will likely net you the best route here.
6
The Dyno
Grade V2
Dyno or make a static move to the mossy topout.
7
The Blowright Problem
Grade V5
Sit start under the horizontal prow with hands on the obvious start holds. Use two opposing heel hook manoeuvres or just a slap and a pull.
8
King Kong
Grade V0
The tiny pointed boulder just to the north. Pull on and dyno for the mossy topout.
