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 may be closed to all 'Rock Sports', due to breeding Peregrine Falcons. A sign is put in place if the birds are nesting in this area.
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 (Top of Mrs Fairy, Angie, Virgins Crack). 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.
