Description

Buildering - climbing man made structures has a proud history in Canberra. The long traverses of the rough hewn bluestone wall on the iconic National Library are a legacy of determined climbers returning time and again after being turfed off by bored security guards. Sanity and library budgetary constraints prevailed and now it is as much a part of the landscape as the joggers on the lake shore below. As a way of developing your climbing strength - outside and close to where we live it is unsurpassed.

That said... There's other places inside Canberra where you could actually get on a rock and go up. Your choice.
