taken from 'A Rockclimbers Guide To Moonbi & Environs, 1999 Edition by Kevin Moore and Al Stephens' A big thanks to Kevin for sharing his hard work and allowing us to keep the history of the area intact. All Boulder grades added more recently will have the V rating. All climbs in the guide will retain the original rating system.
About 2km down the Moonbi Common or Splitters Gully Rd (off New England Gully Rd) is Moonbi Common - an area with public access. Shown to Kevin Moore and Toby Hillier by local horseman, Lew Hyson in Nov 1997, the Common initially appears to have only a limited number of short (7-20m) climbs. However, the area has not been explored fully and a systematic approach may uncover hidden delights. Park cars on your right near the tin dunny and cross creek on a corrugated iron bridge. Access to the top of the hill is best by walking west (Left) along the track for about 100m until archery station #4 (check this?), proceed uphill via easiest line. Veering to the right of the fall line gets you to Common Stealth; the left takes you past Jinx’s Line.
*Bridge and dunny no longer there. Total exploration is under way and has uncovered some more gems! There is potential for more trad lines. Outstanding amount of quality unclimbed boulder problems.
Easiest to park in the bird watchers car park(sign posted) then walk up around the corner to the gate on splitters gully road. Keep the gate closed. Old archery signs are still there. and coming through the gate will bring you in close to the number 4 sign.
As for all areas don't leave rubbish and respect others that use this area. Its common for bird watchers and horse riders to be in the area. Also there is some paintings on some of the boulders, please respect by leaving these alone, feel free to look but don't touch. We have been asked to keep the location of these quiet as possible by a local elder. So if you stumble across them, please don't tell others where they are located.
