Access issues inherited from Halls Gap Area

A low profile always helps to avoid too much attention from tourists and park rangers.

"Please do not add any routes (old or new) to this database for the time being."

Approach

From Halls Gap, walk up the trail to the Mackeys Peak turnoff. Continue along the trail for another 300m, past another pinnacle, then cut directly down through the bush to find a low rock wall after about 100m. Follow this wall to the right(south) for 100-150m until it grows up to be a proper little cliff.

Ethic inherited from Halls Gap Area

Bolting, is considered illicit, along with the rest of the park and other National Parks within Victoria. Only alter routes after considerable consultation with first ascensionests and local climbers.
