Description

The Frontline was the first area discovered and developed in the Balkans. It is the biggest area with about 150 individual problems ranging from V0- to V11. There are excellent problems of all grades and styles.

These cliffs and boulders are generally west and south facing and receive plenty of afternoon sun so they are perfect for cold winter afternoons and hot summer mornings. In summer they can get very hot. The rock is fast drying and clean but beware of the crimps, some have broken with "interesting" consequences. Learn to pull gently and evenly on the holds and tread very carefully.

Approach

Referring to the location map park 50m into Larra Cr. just off Mill Dr. North Rocks next to the Bush-Fire Brigade trailer. Walk down the chained-off driveway, saying hello to all the local barking dogs, and turn left when you hit the grass at the bottom. About 30m along there is a well worn path down the hill with a small creek on your right, follow this path for about 50m. When you hit the cliff-line turn left and scramble down wherever you please, this is the Frontline area (left side).

Alternatively, from the Trenches, go down the hill, cross the creek and then back up the hill. Make sure you stick to the established paths!
