Description

A mecca for bouldering north of Cairns. Beautiful camping on the beach or rocks. Beautiful rocks to match, of all features and types. Some smooth, some gritty, all perfected granite. Pristine part of the Far North.

Access issues inherited from Cairns

Be wary at any coastal or riverside crags for the potential of crocodiles and if you're in the water marine stingers.

Ethic inherited from Cairns

Clean up wherever you go, take your rubbish, or any you find out with you. Brush chalk. So many of these areas are absolutely pristine and we should all make an effort to keep it that way.

Clean and brush but don't destroy vegetation. Avoid steel wire brushes if possible, a good majority of the rock in Cairns will disintegrate using one of these.

Tick marks - ok but brush them off when you leave.

Please don't chip holds and do minimise contrived routes.

GEOTAGGING - PLEASE GEOTAG! For any route you create, or know is hard to find add in the Lat and Long in the route details so it shows on the map. Finding routes in the rainforesr is hard.

Minimise route beta in descriptions to ease onsight attempts.
