Description

In a great position and some good climbs, but a very long walk. Continue along the Square Rock walking trail beyond The Bank, staggering past assorted tourists. The walk in takes about an hour (yes you can slog straight up from Corin Road, but this isn't recommended either). Eventually you will arrive at Square Rock, thoughtfully provided with access stairs. To the right of the stairs is a large boulder and on the west face is are the following climbs.

Some of the crags in the south of this area (e.g. Cantaloupe Hill) were burned in the 2020 Orroral Valley bushfire. Please exercise caution in fire affected areas.
