Small easy access crag close to town
Moderate sport climbs on local quartzite, with easy access from Alice Springs. You could ride your bike... Climbs are short but challenging.
Located within the Telegraph Station Conservation Reserve, there are no access restrictions.
Head N on the Stuart Highway out of Alice Springs for about 5km, then turn R onto a dirt track - ‘The Old Sturt Highway’. If you get to the Charles River bridge, then you’ve gone a little too far. Follow dirt track down, and then to the top of the rise (high clearance vehicle may be required), and park where track turns a sharp L and begins to head downhill under the bridge. The cliff is down R in the creek bed. Walking time 2 minutes.
Most of this cliff was bolted and never written up prior to 1995. Therefore most FA's around this time are First Recorded Ascents.
