A small easily accessible cliff with a lot of easier routes. Not great but OK if you want some easier routes only a few minutes from Halls Gap. Some of them are easily accessible for toproping. The rock is generally sound but there are some unstable blocks below the Northern Cliff. Clearly visible low down above Fyans Creek from the back deck of the Spirit of Punjab restaurant!
Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area
A low profile always helps to avoid too much attention from tourists and park rangers
From the end of Tandarra Rd in Halls Gap cross the bridge and follow the track L towards Boronia Peak. This track joins a 4wd track continue L along this. At the Boronia Peak intersection go L towards Delley’s Bridge. You will reach a gate on a management track on the R after 150m. Contour L through light bush for 100m to the LH [Northern] end of the cliff. Walk down R around the LH end of the cliff to access the Northern Cliff. You will see an obvious rock "window" before descending. The Southern Cliff can be accessed by a gully [cairned] at its LH end or from the RH end through a tunnel between the cliff and a large block. 10 minutes from car.
