Description

A collection of granite boulders with a variety of gradients, the overhanging stuff usually has chipped holds. Most of the grading is questionable, and the chips apparently appeared post-fires.

Access issues inherited from Western Area

This is part of the Lower Cotter water catchment area. There are a number of rehabilitation projects underway to manage run off and erosion.

Approach

Park on Pierces Creek Road and head up past the boulder containing Ms Melanoma.

Ethic

Lots of chipped holds.
