Did you know?

Did you know that you can create an account to record, track and share your climbing ascents? Thousands of climbers are already doing this.


This crag is also on the R side of the road into the park from Coonabarabran, but is about eight or nine km closer to the park than Timor Rock, before Siding Springs. Mopra Rock is not inside the National Park.

Climbs are described clockwise from West Ridge

Access issues

The crag is on private property so permission must be sought first. The 1994 guide recommended phoning Coonabarabran Bushwalking Club. Please update this section if you have any information about how to gain access.


Descent: Downclimb the west ridge.
