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.
Park 200 metres south of the bridge over Red Rock Creek on Red Rock Road. Crag X is the blazingly obvious cliff on the south side of the Red Rock Creek Valley. From the far side of the paddocks (just south of the creek) a well cairned track leads into the valley. The track passes many small cliffs before a big blank wall is reached. Just to the left is a short wall with some trad routes (19-22) upon it, and down by the creek is the Rivendell boulder. The next cliff is Sweet Dude block, with 3 sport routes. From here, the track veers down towards, and then along, the creek. It then passes through (!) a boulder and swings uphill past the Beard Boulder (some mega hard highball plus a few slabby sport routes) and up to the main cliff, arriving at its left hand end. 20 minutes. The Empire of the Sun cave is just around the corner. From here the track branches off – heading down across the creek to the X Blox (2 minutes), or by continuing up the cliff line to the Solarium (10 minutes). The valley is littered with boulders. It appears most have been climbed and named but which is which is anyone’s guess so it’s a great spot to just go and explore and climb whatever appeals. Expect a little overgrowth along the way, but recent track works makes it relatively straightforward.© (nmonteith)
