Summary

A couple of great routes on good rock make a mornings visit worthwhile.

Access issues

From Lake Alexandra walk 15 minutes down the path to the left. Once in the valley floor look right up the hill and you will spot the cliffs. The large crack at the top of the incline is the centre of Dad's Crag.

Approach

20 metres before reaching Dad's Crag, hike uphill for 5 minutes just before the path rises from the valley floor.
