Description

Belougery Spire is the first of many breath-taking rock features encountered en route to the Grand High Tops.

The climbs of Belougery Spire include both short and long routes, varying in grade from easy to more difficult, with the 'Warrumbungles factor' of route-finding adding to the difficulties.

Approach

From Camp Pincham, follow the hiking trail to the Grand High Tops. From here, a vague track leads northeast following a ridge to the base of the spire. To get to start of climbs either scramble onto half-way ledge or walk down the left side or right side of the spire. One other, adventurous, option is to approach the spire's climbs from Hurleys Campsite.

Descent from the spire is quite serious. From the summit saddle, at the log-book container, carefully scramble (back-rope recommended) down the track/gully to two bolts between the middle and south summits. Two 50 m ropes reach Half-way ledge from here or you can abseil to a second (midway) anchor with a single 60m rope .

Many of the topo lines have been drawn from poor quality topos or from the descriptions. Please don't rely on them too heavily and update them once you have completed any of these routes, if required
