Bouldering around the swimming hole. Mostly deep water


Like the rest of Mount Barney National Park - about 2hrs south of Brisbane. Look for signs for the Lower Portals. From the carpark its about an hour's walk.

Looking up-stream there are two sandy beaches. This problem is on the upper edge of the upper beach. Start in near the waters edge, ascend to the left, then use the pocket holds to traverse and top out to the right. Extra points for a backflip finish into the water.
