Summary

A small, blocky crag set in scenic bushland uphill from a flowing creek.

Description

All routes are on the largest section up to 20m in height. The rock is quite sharp with good friction though be careful of loose flakes. TThe routes are either trad or carrot bolted. There are two top belays (both double carrots) so bring some extra slinging to arrange an abseil/lower off.

Access issues

The bush on the eastern side of the fence is very dense. It may be worth investing in gloves or some pruning tools to help establish a track.

Approach

Park as for Gobby road crag on Gobby Road, or take the 4wd track (recently improved so easy to access). The 4wd track heads downhill in line with a fence /park boundary. When the track turns sharply right, continue for about 40m to a parking area. Leave the car here and walk back to the fence line. Follow the fence line down till you reach a gate (the bush is very thick and it may be easier to hop the fence and walk down the bordering fire trail. About 5m past the gate veer right and you will hit the top of the crag about 40m further on.
