Quartz Block

  • Grades: AU
  • Ascents: 3
  • Aka: Quartz Bluff


Access is as for The Gallery but it is the cliff down to the left as you emerge from the chasm.

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.
