Description

A selection of boulders that detached from the mountain long ago. Please help me out with the grading of the problems I have no idea about this V scale.

Take bug spray.

Please be mindful of pad placement trying not to disturb any plants or wildlife. Also please limit chalk use and make sure to clean and brush problems at the end of your session.

There are more boulders to be added within the area, and there may be boulders further down the creek or around the mountain. If you are exploring please follow established tracks, and be careful of your impact.

Access issues inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Most 'Glasshouse Mountains' climbing is within the Glass House Mountains National Park. Please respect the environment and other people's enjoyment of it. Access to climbing here is a privilege, not a right.

The 2019 Ngungun track expansion & fortification work is now complete, and the mountain is once again fully open.

Approach

  1. Walk from the base of the summit track left along The Short Cool Ones track until The Uncut Diamond can be seen 20m to the left of the rock face,

  2. From the carpark walk back about 100 metres until you find the East Beerwah track located across the road from the plantation. Follow the track passing a big fallen down tree and a rockfall sign to your left and keep following the distinct path until you reach the creek bed. At the creek bed turn right and follow the creek until you either see a big fallen down tree or the blue markers. From this point turn left and head up the hill. The crumbling crimps and choss face boulders will be up and to your left from here. From the crumbling crimps boulders follow the tracks directly up towards the base of the mountain to find the Uncut Diamond, and you'll pass most of the other boulders along the way.

Both routes take about the same amount of time, however the second route is friendlier for people carrying pads and has less time spent walking up hill.

Please walk out the same way you came in. This is to minimise potential impact caused by several different goat tracks being created.

Ethic inherited from Glasshouse Mountains

Modern climbers establishing new routes have taken great pains to ensure any new routes do not interfere with the historic routes established many decades ago.

Retro-bolting of existing routes is unacceptable!

New routes shall make use of traditional protection where available.
