About Spur Road:

A good quality Basalt crag, quite similar to Mt Horrible. There are mostly low grade (11 - 18) trad climbs, around 10 - 14m high. There are a few pine trees to anchor off, but not a lot else along the top, so bring lots of long slings.
Nearest town or city: Timaru
Directions: From Washdyke (just north of Timaru) turn inland onto Washdyke Flat Road. Go straight through an intersection on to Spur Road, and follow this for about 4 km. Park just before the deer fence starts, and jump the low fence. Follow the faint track until you meet with the deer fence you parked near, and follow it (even after it turns sharply right) until you find a rock to climb!
