Located down on the flats, Gin's leap is a surprisingly large Trachyte dome, rising out of the plains 4km north of Boggabri on the Narrabri Rd. Unfortunately the rock is very friable, although there are sections with some good climbing.

Useful Info: The "Rock Guide" for 'Kaputar', is still the up to date guide for this area. If there is a blanket of cloud and drizzle over the 'Kaputar' highlands, this may be a place to check out.

Up the friable slab to a wide crack. Up this for a few moves then pull right onto the slab - over the steep headwall on good holds. Could well have been climbed before!

Start: 15m left of 'Klu Klux Klan'.
