A small group of boulders east of Cohiba main area.


A small area with one main boulder. These climbs may have been climbed in Canberra's past pre/post fires. Feel free to change the names if you claimed the rightful FA.

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.


Park at the rock retaining wall in the gully about 150m before the main Cohiba turn off. Walk 100m up the east side of the gully to nearby boulders. Most of the problems are on the uphill side of the first boulder you come to.

Ethic inherited from Pierce's Creek

Pierces Creek is primarily a bouldering area however a number of naturally protected lines have been established over the years. To date aspirant ascentionists have avoided resorting to bolts on the higher problems preferring to rely on; mats, spotters, and gumption.
