The Towers is the North facing cliff line that is visible from the car park.
Access issues inherited from The Rock
This reserve is 6 km west of The Rock village on Lockhart Road, 35 km east of Lockhart and 40 km south-west of Wagga Wagga off the Olympic Highway. From 1st July to 31 December The Rock is closed to all 'Rock Sports', due to breeding Peregrine Falcons.
Take the marked tourist track (Yerong Nature Trail) from the carpark, and turn up the obvious track on the right after about 100 metres. The track is not marked. This leads you up a fairly easy trail to the base of the cliff line and should take about twenty minutes.
Climbers should, where possible, descend using the very adequate rappelling points, the position of which are marked by a small cairn at the top of the climbs. Note that a 50m rope will only just touch the ground from these points if it is slung half way. A 60m rope would be more appropriate. If a 50m rope is used you will have to rappel to a ledge that is about 2m above the ground, then downclimb. A knot in the end of the rope is highly recommended.
