Canyon Crag


A great little cliff for the grade 17 climber. A very compact orange and grey wall on the south bank of the north-east branch of Red Rock Creek.

Access issues inherited from Red Rock Area

Do NOT approach any of the crags in this area across the paddocks from Red Rock Road. The land has recently changed hands and the farmer does not want people crossing the property. Follow the tracks just outside the southern or northern boundaries of the farmland until able to move around the farmland to the area you are going. Please adhere to this to keep open the possibility of negotiated access.


GR 127791

Park at the bend in the road about 200 metres south of Red Rock Creek and walk east across the paddocks. Head up the north-east branch of the creek which goes off just before the large orange cliff on the right is reached (Crag X).

Lovely climbing. The left-hand line on the grey part of the cliff.

FA: Keith Lockwood & Steve Monks, 1989

The line between "No Holds Barred" and "Take Your Pick", traversing in from "Take Your Pick".

FA: James & Melanie McIntosh, 1991

Take crack 2 metres right of "No Holds Barred". Where the crack fades, step right and up steeply.

FA: Keith Lockwood & Steve Monks, 1989

Squeezed in.

FA: James & Melanie McIntosh, 1991

The obvious crack-line at the left (east) end of the canyon. 'Steep' to finish.

FA: Robert Marshall, Norm Booth & Keith Lockwood, 1989

Superb but tiring face climb.

FA: Phillip McMillan & James McIntosh, 1997

Only a few good moves, but these are very good.

Start: Start about 30 metres left of "No Holds Barred"

FA: James & Melanie McIntosh, 1997
