A popular and easily accessible crag with some great sport routes and a few easier trad climbs. Nice and shady even in summer but can be wet after rain.
Some of the routes are bolted with carrot bolts (BR in the descriptions) so don't forget your bolt plates. There are also fixed hangers (FHs), ring bolts (RBs) and u-bolts (UBs).
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.
Walk up the 'Mt Ngungun' tourist track from the carpark on Fullertons Rd. After 10 minutes walk you'll reach a wooden post-and-rail fence. Pass through the gate and you're standing on top of 'Flat Battery Wall'. Scramble down to the right (looking out) to get to the base. 'Owl Pillar' is the obvious pillar just opposite. Follow the rough track down past 'Owl Pillar' to reach the start of 'The Lower Main Cliff'.
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.
