Summary

Not as sharp as Tooheys, but same rock type (I think, but I'm no geologist!) 3-4m high. Plenty of routes to be developed still and some boulders not yet on record still in the park to be sussed out.

Description

Only two areas have been documented here but there is lots of rock that when cleaned, provided some great problems at lower grades.

Access issues

None, This park is an old reclaimed quarry site and has been excellently re-claimed by Logan council

Approach

well maintained paths throughout the park that provide no more than a minute bush walking off the path to access the boulders.

Where to stay

N/A

Ethic

Be aware this is a multi-purpose community recreation area like Toohey Forest. Be respectful of other park users and try to minimise chalk left behind on boulders after session (TAKE A BRUSH). Ideally use a boars hair or similar brush on this rock, nylon or steel brushes will accelerate erosion here.

History

View historical timeline

This park used to be a quarry and has been re-claimed by the Logan city council and made into a beautiful green space amongst the residential areas of this region. As far as I am aware, bouldering here is a fairly new addition to the park so lets keep it respectful and prevent any community backlash they could occur to prevent climbing in this residential park.
