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

A faint track starts from the lookout on the walk up to The Gallery. It skirts the back of The Mother Buttress and goes below Pinnacle Of Achievement.
