There are no published guides covering the Clifden area, however some good possibilities exist there. The rock is clean and about 15m high, just the place to visit if you want to put up a few quick routes.

From Invercargill drive north toward Te Anau (on SH99) after about 98km you will arrive at the Clifden bridge. The climbing faces can be seen on your right as you pass over the bridge. You will need to seek out the land owner to obtain access.
