Description

Home to one quite decent V2 problem and bit more potential nearby.

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.

Approach

Park on the corner of Davey St and Tarragindi road, there is a Toohey's forest sign and track leading east up the hill, ignore it and head about 45 deg left of the track straight up the hill on a faint track. About 50m away is 'The Mushroom', you can see the road from the boulder.
