The underground offers some of the most featured, fun roof bouldering around. A stellar cave that has problems getting closer to routes in length. Outside the cave offers some steep fun easier lines. This is a great summer bouldering spot as it doesn't get the afternoon sun and stays relatively cool, being mostly underground.
Access issues inherited from White Rock Conservation Area
Be aware that there is a rare plant that calls the boulders we climb home. It is in our interest to accommodate it. More details can be found on the ACAQ web site:
From the car park follow the road until you reach the large T intersection with the huge white gum tree, from here turn left and follow the road (ignoring the road to the white rock). Continue up the hill until the road takes a right hand turn and there's a small very blank boulder on your right. Here turn right off the road and follow the trail. The Underground is approximately 100m down the trail. Approach takes about 20 - 30 minutes.
Ethic inherited from White Rock Conservation Area
Redbank is home to some extremely rare plants that call the top of some of our boulders home. If there are logs defining top outs please respect these and avoid trampling anything that isn't grass.

Be mindful of other users, don't leave rubbish or disturb any vegetation. Stick to the established tracks where possible. Do not use steel wire brushes as these will take away the holds.
