Boulder - 8 routes - avg. grade V2 V0 - V1 V2 - V3 V4 - V5 V6+

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 V0
Pull on using the big undercling and reach for the mossy topout.
Grade V2
Start with a sloping sidepull for the left hand, pull up and past the vague rib to another mossy topout.
Grade V6
A hard pull gets you to some okay holds, then an off-balance snatch puts you in sight of the mossy topout.
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.
Grade -
Big bold moves above an awful landing will likely net you the best route here.
The Dyno
Grade V2
Dyno or make a static move to the mossy topout.
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.
King Kong
Grade V0
The tiny pointed boulder just to the north. Pull on and dyno for the mossy topout.
