Description

South west facing with some 25m climbs. Not climbed very often but nice climbing there with 7 routes from grade 13 to 22. Has been recent rockfall there.

Access issues inherited from Castle Rock

The crag is on private farmland, there is a $10 fee (per person per day) to climb. This fee covers maintenance of anchors, bolts, and other facilities and is collected on an honesty basis - sign in and pay at the toilet(!) building beside the main carpark.

Approach

Drive down to bottom of the hill from main road and at the bullring the Towers are immediately to the right. Park outside of the bullring. Parking here will give access to Swamp Wall and Frighteners Rock also.
