Freyberg Pool Climbing Wall
Down near the sea in Oriental Bay sits the Freyberg Pool and climbing wall, drop by some time for a climb and a swim.
Access is unrestricted, however as the wall is located outside it is only usable in dry weather. Be sure to take your sun glasses if it’s a sunny day as the wall is painted white and the glair is intense.
The climbing area is constructed using small chunks of Basalt glued to the slightly inclined concrete wall, located at the end of the pool complex.
