Probably the best way to get to the climbs on the Shady Side. Getting a little eroded due to all the current traffic.

Various gullies may be closed for remediation work at various times. Echo gully currently closed - Autumn 2016.


The track starts from a small clearing - often used for camping. The track is marked by a large tree stump and a cairn. This is easiest to find by parking in the Mt York turning circle area, and walking back towards Mt 'Victoria' for about 50m, it's on your right. Follow track down and through easy downclimb to cliff base. Turn right to the 'Mezzaluna Area', left for the rest.
