Just before the intersection / car parking spot turn right and head 50 metres up the hill. This area has some large walls and one very steep wall. Some grades are fairly stiff, perhaps due to the strength of the climbers first ascending the problems - watch out for Fieg problems! but in reality, like any area the difficulty of the climbs really varies depending on your finger strength, body type etc. Test pieces are named that way for a reason - they're a good way to know if you can really climb the grade or just squeak it in on unknown climbs.
You may need to bring some cleaning gear with you. Due to its location this area doesn't see daily activity and given it is in a forest, moss abounds at times and always returns. Better off scrubbing off some moss than falling on your arse and breaking your coccyx. Or something.
Access issues inherited from Black Range bouldering
These boulders lie in a national park. While there are no current access restrictions, please respect the nature of the park and aim to minimise your impact.
Just before the sign to Tallaganda you can turn right and drive right up to the boulders. Be wary driving up that road though, there's a few large rocks in the way that can damage a low-slung car and the walk is short enough that even a boulderer should be able to endure it.
