Description

A 40m long wall containing some of the best and hardest collection of face climbs in the YY. Most routes can also be top roped. 4 sets of steal belay bolts services this area. Routes are described from left to right! Most routes have a high first bolt and a big run-out on top.

Access issues inherited from The You Yangs

National Park. Parks Vic website (Oct 2014) says "[...] Bookings are required for groups. Individuals are not required to book, but should check with the Park Office to enquire about the availability of sites. [...]"

Approach

From Big Rock car park take the defined track to Big Rock. At the track intersection before the track meets the rock (ie. at the Sign that says "Big Rock 20m") turn left (sign = "Park Office 1.5km") and go down the track (which runs next to a low steep wall). 40m down walk right off the track to the wall.
