Description

Fourth boulder (obvious overhanging face) you approach after crossing creek.

Access issues inherited from Snake Rock Boulders

There are no access issues that I'm aware of. Of course, please remember the usual climbing dos and don'ts.

Approach

Drive about 3.5km along Corin Road (coming from Canberra) and park on the left near a telegraph poll where the power lines cross the road.

Walk about 200m down a dirt road (entrance near telegraph pole and blocked by large rocks) until you approach an open, sandy clearing, turn right, walk about 200m further until you see a cairn, turn left into bush and follow track down to creek. Cross creek and walk up tending left until you see boulders.

History

History timeline chart

George Fieg and then wife Sarah started bouldering here not long after the 1997 ACT Granite guide was published.
