Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area

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

Approach

Park in Visitor Centre carpark. Cross Fyans Creek on the bridge near the SE corner of the centre. From the paddock beyond the bridge the cliff is visible above and slightly to the L [NE]. Walk across the cleared area to the trees. 50m into the trees head R then veer L to follow the L side of a gully up hill to the 4wd track. Walk L on this and at the high point head up and slightly R to the cliff.
