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) 45 minute track towards the peak - clearly signposted. GPS reference for the carpark is -35.448714,148.926694. Note you will have to pay entry costs - $10 per car or $20 per year in 2013.
The second option is from the other side, preferably with a 4WD vehicle. Turn off from Corin Road onto the track at GPS coordinates -35.458573,148.94753, take a left and follow the track around until it does a 180 and you meet a gate. Park and keep trekking up the path for a steep 10 minute walk until you get to the peak.
The peak itself can be found at GPS coords -35.467329,148.95489.©
