Summary:
All Boulder

Long/Lat: 147.010704, -19.499386

Description:

A large boulder next to the creek, as the name suggests this rock is a favourite for people jumping into the cold palm creek water.

Approach:

once you have located the plam creek boulder at the end of the walking track, walk straight down to the creek then turn right and follow the creek. the boulder is quite obvious as it backs onto the water and is much larger than surrounding rocks.

History:

I started climbing here on my second visit to the area, plenty of un-climbed problems unfortunatly I only visit the area once a year during the "palm creek folk fest".
