The most popular mountain in the glasshouses for rock climbing. The big monkey-looking one near the highway. Sport and trad climbing. Single and multi-pitch. Memorable positions.

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.


Travelling north after taking the 'Glasshouse Mountains' Tourist Route off the Bruce 'Highway', drive for 6.5 km to a L turn onto Caves Ln, marked 'Forestry Nursery' (before reaching the turn-off for the Glasshouse Township). Take it. Take second L under the railway bridge onto Evans Rd, then turn L again onto Berteaus Rd. Follow this with the nursery initially on your right, and then on both sides of you. Take the signposted L-turn towards 'Mt Tibrogargan' (small knee-high green-and-yellow sign just beyond the nursery yard; sandy dirt track). You'll pass two more identical signs before reaching a carpark on the L (1.3km from the main road turnoff).

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.
