Two short routes on a vertical face on the side of the Barron River.


Radiation Wall is located near the power station in Barron Gorge National Park along the Barron River.


Drive to the end of the Barron Gorge Rd and park just before the gate. Walk back down the Rd you came from for about 100m and head down the river access trail to the river. Head up stream on the road side with and scramble down or two to the wall.
