Description

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.

Approach

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.
