A major cliffline south of Deep Creek... offering expansive views, sunny cliffs, and water in the creek (Winter-spring). The climbing is interesting and varied... Although some of the rock is soft and sandy, there are quality walls, features and moves to be found. WINTER: Most cliffs (except a few South facing walls) are in the sun all day. SUMMER: Probably best to avoid, but there are a number of cliffs that start seeing the shade from 11am.

If there are crag specific closures, please update the access on those crags.
You can locate this cliff from the massive scar high up on the range just south of Deep Creek. A steep, one hour walk-in up a mostly marked & cairned trail (ignore previous info to walk in from the top, which is long and convoluted). You gain some 350m in elevation in about 1.5km. Location: 5.5km S of Roses Gap Rd / 6.6km N of Plantation Campground. Park about 200m S of where 'creek' crosses the Rd at the markers. There's some tape on the tree, and taped (although quickly re-growing) trail. Once you're at the first outcrop, the terrain opens up and a cairned trail leads the way.
Most cliffs have very easy walk-down options, or are fitted with rap anchors where appropriate.
First visited in 2001 when a couple of routes were established by accessing from the top of the range, it wasn't until 2017 that the full extent of the area was explored when Goshen dragged a bunch of unwitting climbers up on his 40th birthday.
