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.

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.
