The park is popular with walkers and the main crag is not far from the path. Climbers need to be discreet and responsible.
Hale CP is about 2km south east of Williamstown (on the road to Birdwood). Park in the small car park and consult the handy park map. Take the circuit walk clockwise until you reach the lookout. The main crag is 30m to the right, looking out. Grid reference 308400E 6159600N on the Barossa map.
