Description

Home to possibly the hardest granite boulder problem in Australia, 'Gandalf the Grey'.

Access issues inherited from Mt Yarrowyck

95% of the climbing at Yarrowyck is located on private property, but the land owner is a climber and has granted access to all climbers anytime. Please do not leave garbage around, leave gates as you find them and do not harass stock. Climbing at Yarrowyck is a privilege, not a right.

The other 5% is located on National Park land along the trail to the Aboriginal Rock Art site.

Approach

After finding the old track that passes the 'Trackside boulder', keep walking for about 400m gradually gaining height. The lost world is uphill on your right about 50m from the track, over a fence which is so collapsed you might miss it. It can be a little tricky to find the first time, look for a large distinctive fig tree, which is actually growing right through the 'Gandalf cave'.
