The Bank is on the ridgetop immediately south of Smokers Gap. Park at the Smokers Gap car park (one kilometre beyond the Corin Forest slide), cross the road and head up the 'Square Rock' walking trail. This initially zig-zags upwards through small boulders before trending steadily up and rightwards. Where the track veers right, just before the top of the ridge, a large boulder with an impressive left curving crack becomes visible 50 metres or so above and left. Walking time from the car park is about 15 minutes.
The boulders continue northwards along the ridge for about 300 metres. At the end of the ridge is a large group of boulders with a fireplace.©
