Access issues inherited from Victoria Range

The Victoria Range was badly burnt in the fires of February 2013 but all areas are now open to climbing (Feb 2014). However there are access changes to the cliffs in the Eureka area.

Approach

Refer VCC New Routes 1999

'Access' is as for the left end of Eagle's Head to the gully where "Cherry Boy" is found. Continue up left from the gully and the straight up the hillside until a compact crag with a mostly undercut base is reached
