Description

Some great problems including a classic wall in the middle of the bay that goes at V2 or so. Some good other problems as well.

Access issues inherited from Townsville

Most areas are free to access to the public, some are closed for short times during the year due to car, bike and running races and other events such as flooding, bushfires or landslides after heavy rain but they will open again soon after.

Approach

Access is from Horseshoe Bay or Radical Bay.

Horseshoe Bay: There is a track on the RH end of Horseshoes Bay, cut R across the creek and follow the track through the scrub or follow the track behind the houses from Henry Lawson Street. The track then goes up hill to an signposted intersection.

Radical Bay: Follow the track LH end of the bay up and over to the signposted intersection.

From the signposted intersection, walk down into Balding Bay.

Ethic inherited from Townsville

Marking the rock at the start of the climbs used to be the norm, this is now frowned upon.
