Access: Bushfire Recovery

A large bushfire burned through North Black Range bouldering areas from late November 2019 to late January 2020. As of 10 May 2021, the park has re-opened after fire-related closures.

Some problems/areas may have been damaged by fire, exercise caution. Any reports on the extent of damage (or lack thereof) would be appreciated, especially if there are unsafe problems/significant damage.

NPWS sign posted at intersection of Forbes Creek Rd and NBR Fire Trail in late June 2021:

Description

A large developed sector of North Black Range. After the steep hill and just past the Asteroid area, take the next right hand fork where the road splits. Follow this for 100m until it is possible to park on the left.

Access issues inherited from Black Range bouldering

These boulders lie in a national park. While there are no current access restrictions, please respect the nature of the park and aim to minimise your impact. Refer to the NPWS alerts page for the park for up-to-date access information.

Approach

Follow the track down for 30m then head left or right. Left for boulders including Fender Bender and Wayward Bob, right takes you to The Lorax.

Sit start as for Carmel Cream, finish as for problem Fender Bender.

Sit start as for Carmel Cream, move right and down climb Fender Bender, traverse the low shelf and then finish up the entirety of 1000 Ways To Die. A bit of a contrived link up, but super fun and sustained!
