Varied climbing on a prominent collection of boulders. Lots of slabs, a few great aretes and some stellar crack climbs make for a good day out. Most climbs get the sun, making Gibraltar a good winter destination, although there are some good shady climbs as well. Gibraltar is in Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve and is a popular day walk destination, so you can gawk at the tourists having lunch as you do your climb.©
The first option is from the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve. Take the main Tidbinbilla Reserve Road and park at the first dirt carpark on the right. Walk up a (steep) track for 45-60 minutes to the peak - clearly signposted. GPS reference for the carpark is -35.44871,148.92669. Note you will have to pay entry costs - $11 per car or $32 per year in 2015. The reserve gates are locked at 6pm in winter and 8pm in summer.
The second option is from Corin Road. Park opposite a gated track at GPS coordinates -35.45857,148.94753. Walk up the track, circling around 'The Fortress' after 600m. Continue steeply up the firetrail until you get to the peak (40 minutes).
The peak itself can be found at GPS coords -35.46732,148.95489.©
