Some good moderate sport and easy trad
Weirs Creek is the main drainage east of Emus' Foot. The lowest crag on 'Weirs Creek' looks like a pile of choss. However, there are some good things tucked away. The "Disparate Housewives Wall" offers excellent moderate sport-climbing and there are some other things scattered about and some other potential.
The bottom of "Disparate Housewives Wall" seeps heavily for a long time after rain so be prepared to bail water from holds during spring. This wall faces west and comes into the sun about 1 PM (Daylight-saving time). An early start is advised in summer.
The creek water is safe to drink and on a warm day is very nice just before the 10 minutes uphill back to the car. To help keep it that way please take care with toileting. A trowel is in place at the base of the cliff to help bury faeces. Please descend the track a little and then go across the hillside away from the creek to do your business. Dig a good hole.
Also, please carry out any used toilet or tissue paper that doesn't require burial. Take some plastic bags to carry the used paper.
Access issues © inherited from Eureka Area
Area closed to all access due to fire damage. The crags accessed from the Emu's Foot Track were all severely damaged in the February 2013 fires and all access is closed until further notice. Re-opening is not likely before mid-2014. Please respect this closure as the burnt soil is very fragile and will erode easily. Check the cliffcare site http://cliffcare.org.au for updates.
From the parking area below Jananginj Njani walk past the locked gate and follow the continuation of Camp Of The Emu's Foot Track east and gently downhill for about 10 minutes until Weir's Creek is crossed and the track ends. Turn right and go up to the cliff on the eastern side of the creek, heading for orange rock below the tallest part.
