Summary

A quarried cliff not climbed on for many years.

Description

A small cliff near the Plenty river. Similar volcanic rock as in the road cutting near by. Short climbs(<10m).

The parcel of land that the quarry is on, is now coming back into public land hands. Parks Victoria will be acquiring this land and is in the process of doing so. They are supportive of allowing climbing here once acquired, so don't jeopardize access by sneaking in now!

Access issues

Cliff area is on private property. Do not trespass, permission is rarely granted.

History

View historical timeline

The edge was quarried many years ago and is now quite stable. I did some climbs there back in the 90's with a fellow climber who knew the owner. We took a brush cutter and it got plenty of use. Tiger snakes were a natural hazard in summer. It was written up in The Eastern district guide.(p 209)

The area is going through a huge housing development and the cliff may be open if the property is bought out and added to the gorge park.
