Summary

Lots of potential for development and FAs on sandstone boulders

Description

There are many isolated fields of sandstone boulders scattered throughout the forest, similar to White Rock and Toohey's.

There is is probably more potential here than White Rock and Toohey's put together but the long walk-ins have made development slow and sporadic.

The rock quality varies from crumbly sand castles to font-like. The best rock tends to be on top of the ridges deep in the forest. The bad rock is generally down in the valleys.

Access issues

The forest is Ipswich and Logan council reserve and has free access.

The areas deep in the forest are remote and have limited mobile reception. There is a maze of fire and logging trails throughout the forest and it is very easy to get lost. Always carry a GPS.

If you get hurt, lost or bitten by a snake rescue will be difficult and help will take a long time to arrive

Approach

Park either on the northern or southern section of Bellbird Drive, Greenbank and walk-in. The drive from Brisbane is about 50mins. Walk-in times from the car vary from 10-90mins.

Ethic

As for any bouldering area - don't chip. As this a new area, lots of cleaning will be required and loose flakes are inevitable - take care!

History

View historical timeline

Benji Bartholomew began developing the area for bouldering in 2015 though the area would have been known to walkers and probably other climbers for many years before that.
