Mt Blackwood Summit is an old forgotten dolerite trad area, located just up the road/mountain from the more popular sandstone sport crags. Routes follow crack lines for the most part, but recently there has been a few fully bolted sport routes added.
From the Blackwood Rocks crags access - continue climbing along Poatina Road past the last of the major hairpin bends, to locate the site of an old quarry hidden through the trees. There are a bunch of boulders blocking vehicle entry, opposite the start of a road barrier. An overgrown 4WD track can be used to access the quarry, from where it is an undulating uphill scramble across the scree fields to the base of the main cliffs. The walk should take between 40-60 minutes. Be careful walking along the scree, as it is notoriously loose in places.
Upper Right Tier (Who Among Them etc.) can be accessed by climbing up a vegetated gully that splits the lower cliffs, via a couple of fixed ropes. A rap chain has been installed at the top of this cliff (30m).
A more comprehensive guide to the area can be found in 'Climb Northern Tasmania' by Bob McMahon & Gerry Narkowicz.
