Pinchers Bluff is a cliff(s) and is located in Otago, New Zealand. The estimate terrain elevation above seal level is 447 metres.
Skippers Road is one of the most outstanding of New Zealand's surviving nineteenth century roads.
Built in four stages from 1883 to 1890, and only a single lane wide, its construction had to overcome major physical obstacles before it could be completed. The most spectacular of these (Pinchers Bluff) required the removal of large amounts of rock to create a road platform. The road and the country it travels through are both spectacular and scenic. The road is most significant too as, in all likelihood, the only nineteenth century road that has remained in continuous use without major upgrading.
