Access issues inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Most 'Glasshouse Mountains' climbing is within the Glass House Mountains National Park. Please respect the environment and other people's enjoyment of it. Access to climbing here is a privilege, not a right.

Approach

The Summit track is currently closed, so the rock apron can be accessed via south as per Wayne's World access track and west via an easy bush-bash starting from a closed 4x4 track at S26.897070, E152.876763 (20 min). From here head west through the bush, the rock is 300m away from the track (20 min). Once the rock apron is reached (S26.897876, E152.879982) follow it to the right to access fern wall (3 min), or to the left for Thanksgiving Wall (20 min) and Mosquito Wall (25 min). The Underworld can be accessed by scrambling the West Beerwah Route. The east side is accessed by a well formed downhill track starting just east from the carpark at S26.89052, E152.88797 that will lead all the way to the beginning of East Beerwah route. Short and Cool Ones sector and Turtles Back Wall can be accessed by a faint track starting immediately before the carpark entry (S26.89050, E152.88791) that will lead to the rock apron (15/20 minutes).

Ethic inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Modern climbers establishing new routes have taken great pains to ensure any new routes do not interfere with the historic routes established many decades ago.

Retro-bolting of existing routes is unacceptable!

New routes shall make use of traditional protection where available.
