Dark Castle

Grade Breakdown

Just north of Rambandit Valley, Dark Castle features more routes than boulder problems. Some classic lines include the 3-star Rambandit crack, and Eric Talmadge’s Angel of Pain.

A special part of Kura Tawhiti Reserve that has predator fencing - please shut the gates!

Few people venture into Dark Castle these days, the lure of pre-cleaned moderates in Quantum & Spittle Hill prevails.
