A string of small boulders set apart from the main 'Toohey Forest' boulders. The rock is much less forgiving on the skin here, though after a few trips and thickened fingertips there's much fun to be had here! Grades are all over the place, so feel free to post any variances you feel are right.
Access issues inherited from Toohey Forest
'Toohey Forest' is owned by the Brisbane City Council. It's an important habitat for 400 plants and animals, and is very popular with walkers, joggers and picnicking families. Therefore the usual rules of taking out your rubbish, keeping noise to a minimum and so on are particularly important here if climbing is to remain an acceptable activity in the eyes of the community.
Instead of parking at the main 'Toohey Forest' carpark, contInue south down Toohey Rd. Turn left at the first set of traffic lights into Fairlawn St, then take the second left into Bankside St. Follow it around and park near house number 100.
There'll be an obvious gravel vehicle track heading into the bush, with a gate barring it. Walk along this to reach the boulders. You'll find Slice Boulder, '#8', '#7', Tippy, and '#5' on the uphill side of the track.. 'Layercake' and the boulders north of it are found just downhill of the path.
The eternally optimistic Bruce Taylor has found and scrubbed most of this. Sometimes he climbs here too.
