Description

Magnetic Island, a boulderers dream. the island is covered with boulders with an un-countable number of potential problems. the perfect place to explore new areas and contribute your own first ascent.

Access issues inherited from Townsville

Most areas are free to access to the public, some are closed for short times during the year due to car, bike and running races and other events such as flooding, bush fires or land slides after heavy rain. but they will open again soon after.

Approach

Catch the Ferrie across to the island takes about 20 mins

Ethic inherited from Townsville

Marking the rock at the start of the climbs used to be the norm, this is now frowned apon

History

Most developed areas are found in the bays, but dont stop there go explore!
