Description

A small cliff with some strong middle grade lines on excellent rock. Well worth visiting if staying near Halls Gap. Routes described R to L as the RH end is right next to the old track.

Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area

A low profile always helps to avoid too much attention from tourists and park rangers

Approach

The walking track to the summit of Boronia Peak used to go right past this cliff, within 5m in fact. However, the track was re-routed and the start of the old track covered over. If you can find it then it is a quick way to the cliff. Otherwise it is easier to find from the top, but this is a much longer walk. I have described the access this way as the original way is very hard to locate. Park at the end of Tandarra Drive which runs east from the Halls Gap-Dunkeld road just out of Halls Gap heading towards Dunkeld. Follow the track across the creek and keep following signs to Boronia Peak. Once on top of the range around the 3rd saddle an old walking track takes off on the R [down towards Halls Gap]. Within about 10 minutes this passes under a clean pillar of rock with some distinct crack lines. This is Peverills Pillar.
