Description

Waterfall bouldering area is small local crag that has some fun problems. Be warned, you will need to bring brushes to scrub the wall as the area will get flooded in heavy rains and collect a lot of silt and run off. There is a small wall and a good bloc. The large boulder often has water around it after rain. Has a couple of good steep problems. When standing above waterfall looking out, the bloc in down and left, just in view under the big tree. The wall when lookingh out is down and right.

Access issues inherited from Glenrock Lagoon

Located in Glenrock State Conservation Area, an area of ongoing importance to the traditional custodians, the Awabakal. There are numerous heritage sites scattered throughout the region. The land manager is the NPWS. Climbing is not recognised in the current plan of management, but will be incorporated in the 2021 plan. Climbers should be mindful of flora, fauna and cultural heritage and should not disturb these.

Chalk use should be minimised, and tick marks removed. Use headphones if you need music at the crag. Lookout for crag care days to help with bush regeneration and track work.

Expect to see waterdragons, monitors and snakes. Warnings don’t need to be raised every time a reptile is seen. Leave vegetated caves in cliff faces alone. A number of rare birds inhabit these eg powerful owls.

Approach

The Waterfall Bouldering area located on the southern leg of Flaggy Creek. Walk in as for the main climbing area, but 200m after you pass the suspension bridge follow the creek bed down on the southern side of the waterfall via a short downclimb on a fixed rope. The Waterfall Boulder will be on the opposite side below the 8m cliff of the waterfall itself.
